Eagles munch on fox

Michael has been busy doing pest control and unfortunately that involves shooting foxes and rabbits. But over the last few weeks he was perplexed by a little mystery and has finally solved it, with surprising results!

He’d noticed that the fox carcasses were disappearing and he couldn’t figure out what was taking them (no obvious tracks or clues). So he left the next fox carcass in a sandy area and stuck a motion sensor wildlife camera on it to capture footage of the culprit. It turned out that ravens were the first to dine, followed by two Wedge-tailed Eagles, then finally a young fox drags off the grisly remains. After five days there was nothing left, but the mystery had been solved.
