All Photos: Jeffer Sandström/The Local

While ice skating on Lake Bunn near Jönköping in central Sweden, 26-year-old Jeffer Sandström found a frozen fox. The poor little fella appears to have fallen through thin ice, couldn’t climb out, and eventually froze there with his head and whiskers just above the surface.

Sandström wisely decided to call it a day, what with a fox having cracked through the ice and all, but not before taking some hauntingly beautiful photos of his unfortunate (but very natural history museum-like) discovery:

Sandström saw something near him in the lake and went over to investigate.

As it turns out, he was skating by a fox.

Much like Jack, the fox was frozen with only his head above water (but no Rose, or door, in site)

And here’s the photographer, Jeffer:

RYOT NOTE from Katie

This fox is not the only animal that has fallen victim to the harsh elements. Sometimes these deaths are all part of the circle of life, but in other instances, animals suffer as a price for human development. The World Wildlife Fund is dedicated to helping protect all animals and their environments. Click on the action box above this story to learn more, get involved, and Become the News!
