It's usually foxes that kill chickens, but the opposite appears to have happened at a farm in France.
The unusual incident happened at Le Gros-Chêne farming school in Brittany last week.
According to local media, the young fox is believed to have gained access to a coop housing around 3,000 chickens during the night.
However, it's thought the chickens then ganged up and defended themselves against the predator.
AFP reports that the trapped fox was unable to escape due to light-controlled hatch doors.
Pascal Daniel, the head of farming at the school, told the news agency: "There, in the corner, we found this dead fox
"There was a herd instinct and they attacked him with their beaks."
He added that a similar coop invasion in the past ended up much worse for the chickens.
