Disabled Fox

I do hope she manages to survive to adulthood…

For several weeks we’ve been visited in the garden by a young fox with a pronounced limp.  She (I think it’s a vixen) has an injured or deformed front leg which she holds off the ground and hops on three legs.   I recorded this video back in June this year, and so far she appears to be able to find enough to eat to stay healthy.  It looks like she is probably limited to feeding on insects and earthworms.  Maybe she can occasionally catch small mammals.  I do hope she manages to survive to adulthood.  I’ll keep a watch out to see how she fares.
