The tracks were unmistakably those of a red fox and he could not resist the urge to follow them. He found that the ultimate destination of the fox was a deer carcass. The fox was about to indulge in an evening meal of frozen venison when it spotted him. They eyed each other for a moment before the fox was gone in an instant.
