Literally — a perfect display.
Apparently, a hunter in Fridingen — which, according to the AP, is a town near near the upper reaches of the Danube — told news agency dpa that the fox drowned in the water after falling through the ice.
Hotel owner Franz Stehle put the fox on display after cutting out the block of ice. He said it's not uncommon for wildlife to drown and then freeze in the river, and he's even seen frozen wild boar and deer.
Winters in Germany don't play nice. According to About.com, the average low in January is 23 degrees Fahrenheit, and according to a report from Accuweather, the temperature is dipping to about 21 degrees Fahrenheit in Fridingen, specifically.
If you're planning a winter retreat to Germany, be sure to bring your thickest jackets. And maybe pull a Snow White and try talking to the animals — they could use a warning.
