He’s a real sil­ver fox!

Daily Mail - - News -

IF this en­chant­ing crea­ture crossed your path, you might mis­take it for a moun­tain wolf.

In fact, it is a rare sil­ver fox – re­cently dis­cov­ered roam­ing a back­yard in a small Cheshire town.

The RSPCA is look­ing af­ter the an­i­mal, which was spot­ted by a shocked home­owner in Al­sager.

Named Shadow by the char­ity, he is thought to have been a pet due to his tame tem­per­a­ment.

Lee Stew­art, who man­ages the cen­tre where he is be­ing kept, said he was the first sil­ver fox it had seen. They are the same species as reds but have melanism, mean­ing a dark pig­ment ap­pears on the skin.
