IT was a murder most fowl. A less than fantastic Mr Fox was found dead, apparently from several head wounds.

The suspects: Dude, Izzy, Pongo and Pecky, four birds who played chicken with the fox and, it would appear, won.

It seems fighting cock Dude led his ladies into battle when the fox managed to get into their coop late at night.

Surprisingly, the feather-weight contest didn’t end in a slaughter of the chickens but the demise of the predator.

News of the fight broke when chicken owner Michelle Cordell, 43, went to collect eggs from her brood and found the dead fox lying in their midst.

‘I was so shocked. When I went to the chicken coup they were all fine but, when I went to the other side, the fox was lying there dead,’ she said.

Ms Cordell added that a little table in the corner of the coup, which the chickens perched on, had been knocked over and was lying next to the fox’s head.

‘It seems they kicked over the table and knocked the fox out, and then pecked it to death,’ she said. ...Poultry - 1 Fox - 0 (http://www.metro.co.uk/weird/815621-dude-the-fighting-cock-kills-less-than-fantastic-mr-fox) :D

Funny-something in me wants to somehow relate this to the health care debate... :D

To be fair, it appears that a table fell on the fox and knocked it unconscious. Having some experience with both foxes and chickens, it would hard to believe that even the most determined chicken could kill a healthy fox in close quarters. ;)

Maybe Mr Fox should learn to use weapons as the chickens have. :D
