This gorgeous-faced Fox captured my heart.
Foxes and the countryside have been a part of my life since I was a child. I rescued a Fox cub when it’s family had been tragically hunted and killed. I nurtured him and brought him back to health, to be released back into the wild (although at the time, I begged Mum and Dad to let me keep him).
My parents were very long-suffering – I was always bringing home either a bird, bat, rabbit, cat or fox cub which had been injured and needed attention. I lived next door but one to a vet in training which was handy, and would often turn up on his door step wanting assistance. (He now has his own practice , so I couldn’t of got on his nerves too much, persistently ringing his doorbell.)
I am of course, as you will have guessed, against all forms of hunting. Fox hunting is an abhorrent pastime. It is very outdated so-called “sport” and barbaric in this day and age.
