Fox Cub

Posted by Jon in News, Rescued, Wild Mammals on Sunday 03/04/2011 17:57 UTC.

This little chap is the first fox cub of the season, he was found during building works which disturbed the mother.

He is probably around four weeks old so still being fed on milk, our task will be to keep him warm and bottle feed on milk replacement.  Fox cubs do require a lot of attention, they are quite noisy particularly at night!

Slowly he can been weaned off milk onto puppy food. We always minimise our handling so that he will not get too imprinted and easier to release back into the wild.
