One of Jamie Oliver's rare black swans was killed by a fox recently. (Obviously Jamie Oliver keeps rare black swans.) The British celebrity chef posted an Instagram photo of blood splattered eggs the swan had been sitting on, writing a "massive" fox killed it and "didn't even eat a thing just tore up the mother." Well, the joke's on the fox because Oliver's threatening to cook up its brethren at his restaurants: "If you see fox on my menu soon don't be surprised." Anyway, according to the Daily Mail, Oliver plans to incubate the eggs until they hatch, so don't worry about his rare swan collection. The swans shall prevail.
