Two mice fighting in London Underground wins top wildlife photography prize

Sam Rowley’s photo ‘Station Squabble’ has won Wildlife Photographer of the Year given by London’s Natural History Museum.

The photo shows two mice tussling on a London train platform.

“It’s a such an honour to be chosen. It’s been a bit of a dream of mine for almost 15 years,” Rowley told As It Happens host Carol Off.

According to him, the fight lasted “about a quarter of a second.”

The annual prize is decided by public vote. This year, Rowley’s photo won out over 48,000 submitted.
