It seems that this week is baby fox week on the bloggo. Only a day or so after we featured Beth Tyler-King's latest fox rescue, Jan Edwards writes:
We had a call this morning about an orphaned fox cub in a garden 50 miles away. She was being attacked by crows. The people who found her took her in, and she ate a little dog food. They had phoned lots of rescue places nearby, but no one would take her on.
I have had some experience with fox cubs, and was travelling close to where the people lived, so we met at the Trade Warehouse where I buy my animal feed. She’s about 4 weeks old and in good health apart from a few ticks, which are being dealt with. She’s tucked into some cooked chicken, and seems to think that life is weird, but all right really…. She now has a cuddly toy that is bigger than she is and a dog crate to call her own.
Long term, it would be nice to rehab her back into the wild. Our private woodland will make a good soft-release area when she is older. We think she is delightful!
