Fox of Germany
In January of 2017, a hunter was walking along the Danube riven when he discovered an ice block with a frozen fox inside.
He thinks that the fox probably drowned in the river and was then transformed into an icy block by the ice cold weather.
The hunter who found the fox (Franz Stehle) extracted it from the ice on Jan. 2 and brought it up to his family’s hotel, where it’s now displayed. If you want to see the frozen fox up close, you can always visit Franz Stehle’s family hotel in Fridingen.

Fighting Moose of Alaska
In 2016 a group of people uncovered two frozen moose locked in a battle position near an Alaskan village. Researchers think that the two of them were fighting over a female, but one of them got injured badly, and probably even died from its injuries.
This made it difficult for the other moose to get away, and was weighed down and stuck there waiting to die from the cold.

In 2015, Kelly Preheim visited Lake Andes National Wildlife Refuge and was startled by what she saw.
Later on she explained what might be the reason that left so many carp and other fish living in the Lake to suffocate and freeze. The fact is that the level of the lake dropped that year, because of drought, and the fish suffocated due to lack of oxygen.
What happened was that the thick layer of ice that formed on the surface blocked the sun rays and the algae living in the lake couldn’t photosynthesize, which means they couldn’t produce oxygen. They started to die out and decompose, which used up oxygen as well and led to a decrease in its levels which eventually suffocated the fish, and left them frozen in the form of small blocks of ice.
Fox frozen in Swedish lake
26-year-old Jeffer Sandström from Sweden was ice skating on a lake in Jönköping when he was stunned to find a frozen fox in the lake.
In his interview he said that he was hesitating on whether he should go ice skating that day, but decided that it should be fine, since temperatures were below zero the whole week.
The ice was supposed to be 3 to 5 cm thick, yet after a few minutes into his ice skating he heard a cracking sound, and saw something unbelievable stuck in the ice.
Although he couldn’t believe his eyes, and thought it was some trash at first, he soon realised that it was in fact a fox. The fox had probably fallen into the ice and tried to get away by swimming, when it froze to death.

Frozen frog in Norway
A frozen frog was witnessed in Norway, that looks as if it’s sleeping. Sadly, it’s a sleep it will never wake up from, as it was frozen still while trying to cross the lake.
Scientists believe that the reason it decided to wake up from hibernation early was the sudden and drastic rise in temperature. It woke up from its sleep, and probably went looking for a mate when it froze to death on the way over.

Frozen donkeys in Turkey (believe it or not they survived)
A small heard of frozen donkeys was seen in a small and remote village in Turkey, and after the footage was released a rescue team went over to attend to them right away. The donkeys were left unattended in the harshest and coldest conditions to fend for themselves.
When the rescue team got to the donkeys, most of them were too cold and frozen that they couldn’t move. They were covered in snow and ice, and had icicles hanging from their flank.
The rescue team was shocked. They quickly carried them into the truck and straight to the animal shelter, where they were cleaned up, warmed up, fed and received medical attention. The rescue team went straight back to the village to look for other animals that might be abandoned in the same area.
