Strange fox?

Leccy fence does keep them out, but it didn't stop this one from being just a few yards on the other side. Cheeky bleeper! I had already been in the chooks run, letting them out getting feed, and generally wasting tme watching them for at least 20 minutes when it started to trot past, I shouted but it didn't seem overly bothered. Thankfully I haven't seen the fearless b***** again, nor have any chickens disappeared mysteriously, so I am relieved to have as good a proof as possible that the fence really is effective; it's not just chance.
The real reason for posting about it though, is that it had a black tip to it's tail, instead of white!!!
Anyone else seen or heard of such a thing?

You do get quite a few variations but I've not seen that one. A good few years ago, I caught one that was virtually black.

I saw a grey one with black ears and tail tip in town a few months ago, it was on the pavement, not the road, sadly...

Last big influx of Americans around here was RAF Burtonwood, GI Foxy?
