This little fox cub came into our care after being found and brought home by a family dog at Lanner. The dog had carried the cub very carefully and had not caused any damage.

It was a male of about three weeks old and soon settled in a cosy bed with a teddy for company. Janner thrived with a healthy appetite and was soon weaned onto solid foods.

As we had no other foxes in care at the time, Janner was lonely and Secret World in Somerset very kindly agreed to take him. Fox cubs can become too used to humans when kept alone as they then look to us for companionship, not a good thing when they need a natural suspicion for a return to a wild life.

So on April 25th we transported Janner to a new life where he could mature safely with a group of other foxes before their eventual release.
