A brazen fox has been pictured grinning from ear to ear after scavenging food from a back garden in Birmingham.

The smiling vixen showed no regrets as she posed for homeowner Steve Downer, in his garden in Acocks Green.

Steve snapped the cunning creature before she quickly moved on to try her luck elsewhere.

The 62-year-old befriended the fox and often finds her in his back garden on an evening.

He said: “She’ll take food from my hand and let me film her from a few inches away.

“When she first shows up in the evening she announces her arrival by putting her nose against the conservatory door and taunting our dog nose to nose through the glass.

“If the dog isn’t there, she will come into the conservatory to take food.”
