A frozen fox is found in Germany due to the cold wave


The cold snap of Siberian origin that has hit a large part of Europe has left many areas on alert due to snow, intense cold, rain and strong winds. But it has also left behind important images of collateral damage to wildlife.

One of the photos that are being spread the most on the internet is that of the frozen fox that has been found in the Danube river.

The fox was found by a neighbor of Fridingen an der Donau (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) in an area with almost crystalline ice in about 60 centimeters thick. It is estimated that the fox was chasing some prey and when it passed through the ice above the river, it cracked and fell into the almost frozen water.

Due to the strong cold, the animal froze. Although the date of death is not well known, it is seen to be recent. Franz stehle, the man who found this fox, bundled up and went to retrieve the body of the frozen animal. In order to get it out, he had to use a power saw. The fox was on the transparent ice that could be seen your entire silhouette.

The position in which the fox died is similar to the positions that animals have in museums. In addition, the comments of people on social networks compare it with some images of frozen animals from animated films such as IceAge. Franz Stehle has become famous after being featured in photographs and newspapers with the frozen fox.

But this fox is not the only one who has been frozen by the cold. Photographs of two frozen male moose were released last November near the town of Unalakleet, Alaska. In this case, the animals died because of the low temperatures linked with their horns as they fought.
