One day there was a man going to Ennis with a load of turkeys. In a quiet part of the road he saw a fox lying down pretending to be dead. When he came near him he picked him up and threw him into his car with the turkeys and drove away. After awhile he looked back and he saw that all his turkeys were killed and the fox gone away.
