Dead Mice – fox?

This morning on the new path around Pony Wood there were 4 separate dead mice. There are also some clumps of red brown fur which may be the result of a fox moult. Is it likely that a fox would kill but not eat or take mice?

Fairfield Foxes


This poor photo shows one of two foxes at the boundary between Lower and Upper Sowerholme (it was over 300 yards away) yesterday early evening.


At 6.30 this morning both foxes were in our garden which backs onto Upper Sowerholme.
