 I put the geum flower there to give you an idea of the size of this horror. Our garden is not accessible to neighbours' dogs. Nobody in our household is admitting to having left it.

It is black and oily and appears to be full of small grey hairs. It doesn't look like the usual badger offerings and if it's a fox it is a Charles Atlas of a fox.

Any ideas?imageimage

    Must be fox, although I agree it is large. Maybe a gym honed fox on steroids?

    I think that's fox poo.  Foxes do vary in size - occasionally a big dog fox can be quite substantial.

    I think it's fox, I had one just like it on the grass, usually get the normal token one every morning but have had the  exeptional huge one. Now they have blackberries in them, yuk,image

    does look the right colour for  fox poo, but I'm more used to seeing it smeared all over my dog rather that in formed shapes like that image

    A big dog fox, leaving markers and looking for a friendly vixen.

    It definitely wasn't me image

    I'd say fox too, as it looks like 'big dog'

    .....very big! image image

    At least it's not smeared carefully on grass  image image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

  • Definitely a fox.  We get this on our lawn now and again as foxes live in the woods behind our house.
