  1. I wonder if the ‘thing(s)’ are referring to prey, meaning the fox finds prey and the hedgehog is prey. Saw the movie “Born Free” aired this week; a hedgehog was the first meal in the wild for Elsa as she was being returned to her natural habitat. She just had to run to catch it. Archilochus may have been typing people – but I don’t know whether a hedgehog is carnivorous.
