A fly-tipper was caught on CCTV dumping a dead fox and a bag full of rubbish in a garden.
Seconds later, the suspect emptied the contents of a plastic bag over another patch of grass before carrying on down the road.
One resident who asked to remain anonymous claimed it was just the latest in a series of similar incidents in recent weeks.
“I think the person is a local,” he said. “It happens so much — usually the night before bin day.
“He must have poisoned the fox or something, or whacked it across the head with a great big stick.
“My neighbours had the problem for a month, but now it’s in our garden too.”
He described the video as “incredible”, and asked: “How do you dispose of a fox?”
Vale of White Horse District Council appealed for information about the litterer to be sent to their environmental crime officers.
“We are investigating a case of fly-tipping where someone dumped a dead fox and rubbish onto front gardens in Appleford Drive, Abingdon, just after 1am on Tuesday, 7 January,” it said.
“If you have any information about this incident please email email@example.com or call 01235 422403.”
