A Fox Mourned...

While traveling along a busy road some time ago I came upon a magnificent red fox lying along the side of the street who sadly had been killed by passing traffic.

Thank you! I felt grieved by the violent and senseless death of the fox, and wanted him not to just lie there, abandoned and ignored.
