POLICE Log: Anorak’s Look At Crime In The News…

Man Tail Gates Fox

A Tennessee man named Tommy Fox crashed his car while contending with an attack from a real fox whose tail he intended to cut off, authorities say.

Horse power. Tally ho!

After the Dover man struck a red fox that had dashed in front of his sports utility vehicle last week, he allegedly retrieved the seemingly dead animal from the roadway with plans to cut off its tail for a souvenir, a state wildlife official told Gannett Tennessee.

But he said Fox’s plans went awry when the animal regained consciousness in the back seat and attacked, causing Fox to lose control of the vehicle and flip it over into a ditch.

The fox died – or did it..?
