total fox.

I know this photo is kind of Nessie-ish, but really, it's true: the creature next to the green spherical thing is a big-ass fox. In the backyard here at Crouch End. He (she) then proceeded to leap up on to the fence and tiptoe his (her) way across the backyards looking for something to plunder. Moments later we saw him come back the same way with something rodent-oriented in his mouth. Quite surprising, the whole thing: the fox's size (way bigger than a coyote) and obvious wildness vs. the population density of this neighborhood. Don't know how he (she) does it, but it totally explains the Sounds Of Unpleasant Death I heard in the middle of the night a couple days ago.
