Is this a fox?

We moved from Hockley Heath to the Birmingham suburbs today, tying up at Bridge 5 on the Stratford Canal. On the way we spotted on the towpath what looks like a fox, but with a less than bushy tail.

What do you think? A cub?

Earlier today we passed a recently burnt out canalside cottage.

Perhaps it had been derelict before the fire, but it's sad to see. Nothing on the scale of Grenfell Tower in London, of course, with its shocking death toll.

From your photo I would guess a fully grown fox, but sadly it appears to have Mange... I have seen similarly affected foxes in my back garden over the years.
