Another rare black fox spotted in Coventry.
A SECOND black fox - one of the rarest animals in the Britain - has been spotted in Coventry.
The Telegraph reported last week how a black fox had been seen running across Coundon Wedge Drive by Wendy Hier - although it was too quick for her to snap a picture.
And now another of the rare creatures - which has a distinctive white-tipped tail - has been sighted in the Walsgrave area of the city.
Sandra Watts, who lives in Pandora Road, said: "We've had one around here for the last two years to my knowledge. I've seen it myself on quite a few occasions.
"One time I was out at about 7.30pm in the fields opposite Pandora Road and I must have been watching it for about five minutes as it was snapping at moths.
"It eventually realised I was there and my dog was moving around as well, and it took off. And it wasn't until then that I noticed it had the white tail and wasn't all black.
"It is a strange looking fox and people thought I was mad when I was first talking about. But one of my friends has seen it as well."
The black fox is so rare that wildlife experts believe there are only a handful of the species left in the country.
