Chicken variety meal, please. Oh, and leave on the heads. And the feathers. And maybe the beaks.

Shocking statistic: 48% of fox deaths in London are attributed to collisions with old-people's wheelie bags.

Photographer Martin Usborne had a wonderful idea. Get a stuffed fox, pose it in various places around London, and snap away. Martin tells the story:

The fox had recently died of natural causes (so the man in the stuffed animal shop - 'Get Stuffed' - told me) and had been handed to the taxidermist by the RSPCA. When I got my hands on the thing it was only three days dead and its fur was surprisingly soft. The fox cost more to hire per day than a ferrari and could not be insured against damages as it was so expensive. I spent three days walking around London enjoying interacting with people on the street. The fox was returned undamaged, having enjoyed revisting its old haunts.

You can see more from the series on Martin's site, which also includes photos of dogs in cars.
