A fox has died in extraordinary circumstances after losing the ultimate game of chicken during a night-time raid on a henhouse.Students at Gros-Chene secondary school in Brittany were shocked to discover the dead body of the fox riddled with peck marks during their morning rounds last week. “There, in the corner, we found this dead fox,” Pascal Daniel, head of farming at the school, told news agency AFP. “There was a herd instinct and they attacked him with their beaks.”
“The hens have been there since July, so for more than seven months, and have probably learned to defend themselves.” Apparently no chickens were found to have been injured during the incident.
