In­jured vixen finds safe haven

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Front Page -

THIS is the cute, but ail­ing fox cub, now in the care of ex­perts.

Ka­t­rina Alexan­der, of Swaf­fer Way, Sin­gle­ton, found the in­jured vixen wan­der­ing out­side her home last week.

She nursed the cub for one night be­fore hand­ing it over to the Na­tional Fox Wel­fare So­ci­ety to give it a new home in Ton­bridge.

Mrs Alexan­der said: “When I kneeled down it came straight to me. It was very tame.

“The fox was ex­hausted and had a head in­jury. It was also found to have no eye­sight, pos­si­bly from worms or be­ing hit by a bi­cy­cle, which would also ex­plain the in­jury.”
