A Vegetarian Fox?

I was about a quarter way down the back bridge at the park this morning, looking more over the sides for the fawn than forward when I stopped and the fox stopped. Standoff.

I wasn't surprised to see the fox but what did surprise me was what it was carrying in its mouth.

It was obvious that the fox wanted to cross the bridge and I felt badly as I suspect it had young ones on the other side.  It timidly started forward then stopped.  I couldn't decide on whether to turn around or not but figured it would not cross even if I backtracked.

After at least 30 seconds of us facing off, it eventually turned and headed off.
