Fox?

Again, we need some idea of size. Fox droppings vary considerably depending on what it has been eating. If eating mammals then it is hard and consists of fur and bone; however, at the other end (pardon the pun) if, as in autumn, it eats lots of berries it is a black paste - more like a birds dropping.
