A dead baby fox has been found wrapped in bin liners down an alleyway in Welwyn Garden City.

The young fox was discovered in an alleyway off Ludwick Way leading to Upperfield Road wrapped up in two black bin liners.

Former vet Leigh Stoten, of Welwyn Garden City, ventured out to find it after a woman posted on social media that she had come across the dead animal.

Leigh told the Welwyn Hatfield Times that the fox is intact and doesn’t appear to have been decapitated, mutilated or received any physical injuries.

On Wednesday, February 21, a dead cat was found in Blackthorn Road with its head missing.

The charity South Norwood Animal Rescue and Liberty is certain that the beheading was done at the hands of the M25 Cat Killer.

The M25 Cat Killer, also referred to as the UK Cat Killer or Croydon Cat Killer, is thought to have killed, dismembered and decapitated more than 400 cats across England, beginning in 2014 in Croydon.
