Last spring, this farmer found small fluffy babies in his barn. There were 5 of them. At first, they seemed to be kittens.
But looking closer, he realized that they were newborn foxes. They were very small, about 2-3 days old. He began to search the area to find their mother, but to no avail.
His daughter Jemma was worried about them when she saw the foxes. They decided not to touch them, as their mother might soon appear.
So they decided to wait a while. One day passed, but nothing changed. Mom did not show up.
The farmer’s family decided to place the red-haired babies in a nearby shelter where they would be given proper care.
And when the babies are old enough, they will be released into the wild. However, things did not go as planned.
Five days later, when one of the fox cubs opened his eyes, he saw Jemma, the farmer’s daughter.
The fox cub thought that the girl was his mother and became very attached to her.
It is known that especially foxes and dogs in the first days of their lives have a so-called printing cycle and the cub is the first to remember what he sees after opening his eyes.
So Jemma could not resist the baby’s love and took him to her. Now the girl and Danny are raising her.
The fox was named Vicks. They are very caring and hug him like a lovely baby. Since the fox grew up in a warm and caring family, it has absolutely no wild animal character.
He is very calm and friendly. The other foxes were not used to humans.
So they were sent to a shelter, and then, when they were old enough, they let them go home to the wild.
