593 Kodachromes from USAF Film "Gone to Earth!" But Not for Long. Airmen Dispossess a Red Fox If they had carried guns, these lost airmen might have bagged ducks, loons, gulls, or ptarmigan, but they had to settle for a fox, whose burrow they discovered in the Alaskan tundra. They scaled all but one exit to the den, set a snare above it, and fanned smoke into the hole. Fleeing, the animal ran into noose and forked stick (below left) and the carving knife (right). Tough and gamy, its flesh nevertheless satisfied gnawing appetites to a certain degree.
