The world's worst hunting dog?

Role reversal /Rex

A bungling beagle has been branded the world's worst hunting dog after failing to spot a fox trotting along behind him. The hapless hound had strayed too close to a den containing four cute fox cubs.

But their protective parents were not going to be hounded out without standing their ground.

The foxes shot off through the undergrowth to confront the hound, but, amazingly, the male fox ended up behind the dog.

Naturalist and photographer Mircea Costina captured the amazing scene in a forest north of Montreal, Canada. He said: "I have been watching this one fox family for three years since 2008. This year they had four little pups and the two parents are very protective. "This one day, around 7am, I was close to their den, trying to take some pictures. Suddenly the two parents became very agitated.

"In the next moments I heard a dog barking. The male looked to try and see the intruder while the female attempted to pursue him. "The dog was getting very close to the den when the male saw the hound and started tracking it.

"Luckily the dog gave up and finally left and the family remained safe. I think he was more interested in the game of smelling the fox trace. The master recovered the dog and put him on a leash.

That's pretty cute. We've got a couple foxes here on Scott AFB, but I've never come across a den in the wild like that. That would be interesting.

I'm pretty certain that fox is actually a proctologist.

My dad has had a number of beagles over the years. If his were any indication, your beagles were humping the hell out of those rabbits before you ate them. :D

Looks like a beagle..but beagles are much closer to the ground. I remember my first beagle and her 2 litters...I love that breed. Good hunters but also family dogs.
