Not all wild animals act feral, defensive, or cautious around humans. This particular fox surprised humans after he willingly followed him around the forest. That certain action sent the humans a message saying, “I need your help.”
Found all alone, there is no one to care for this fox cub.
These people were trekking along the woods when they noticed a little guy following them around. They stopped, took a closer look, and noticed that it was a tiny fox cub. The baby fox was clearly not in a good condition. You could see how dirty he is, and his fur was falling off in some parts of his body.
He was also thin and weak, and it seemed that he couldn’t stop shaking.
The humans ignored the little fox assuming that the mother was still around looking for him. However, the cub continued to follow them around, hinting them that there is no one taking care of him.
The humans got the message and decided to rescue him.
They eventually realized that there was no mother fox all along, and the cub was just roaming around fending for himself to survive. They left them for a minute inside a small hole as one of them ran back to grab a cloth to wrap the cub with.
The usual reaction should be to run away from the humans but this peculiar fox cub approached them, letting himself get picked up until they were able to tuck him with the cloth they brought. The cub was surprisingly calm, and the warmth eventually made the fox fall asleep. The humans carried the cub in their arms like an actual baby. It seems like their help was what the fox wanted all along.
Caring for the fox cub.
As the rescuers reached home, they immediately let the fox satisfy his hunger as well as quench his thirst. The hungry fox gobbled the food as if it was his first time for a long time. A couple of minutes later, they bathed him on the sink, removing all the dirt stuck in his fur.
The rescuers found fleas underneath the fox’s fur, and they carefully rinsed it with soap in order to eliminate them. The baby fox remained so calm during the bath and after drying him with a towel, he looked like a clean and happy cub.
Months later, the cub adjusted to his new home with his rescuers.
They could not fathom the thought of leaving the fox all alone again and so they decided to keep the fox with them.
Months later, the fox grew up to be an elegant red fox. His eyes were full of life, and he could not hide his excitement when he sees his rescuers coming to visit him in his room. Just like dogs, they let him have an enjoyable walk outdoors.
He knows he would be safe with his humans and he would run back to them to fish for attention.
The fox also became best friends with their adorable Shih Tzu and there is not a time when you would not see them cuddling or playfully wrestling like siblings.
It is amazing how this one lonely cub turned out to be the happiest fox in the world. Thanks to his rescuers, his little red fur is now filled with happiness and glows like a beautiful sunset. Share this cub’s story with your friends and family so you could show them how a selfless deed could help a life bloom.
