Horror in the alleyway

My friend and I were walking along our usual route, bantering in jocular fashion as we returned from our club, somewhat inebriated as we were, when we were jolted by the chilling sound of a woman’s scream.

So unsettling was this woman’s cry that we resolved to find the source immediately, lest she be in dreadful pain or under attack by some churlish ruffian.

We ran as fast as we could, down this street and down that alleyway; certain of the direction from whence the cries came, knowing that we were getting closer as they increased in their intensity.

Afore long we saw a shadow of a hideous beast cast upon a wall by the glow of a nearby street-lamp; saw the outline of its fimbriated back arch as its body convulsed with the force of its efforts, each sickening jerk eliciting yet another unearthly shriek!

Unable to imagine what depravity the monster was engaged in we ran around the corner, intending to rend the creature from its victim and hold it there until we could summon the police; it was then that, perforce, we came to face the terrible truth…

It was a pair of foxes, rutting.
