Fox too friendly to be released into the wild


While foxes are typically considered to be cunning and wily, friendly would not be a term often associated with the woodland creatures.

But one fox in England is proving that foxes can be sweet instead of sly.

According to the Daily Mail, Pudding the fox was abandoned at birth by her mother. The National Fox Welfare Society took charge of the abandoned animal, with hopes of integrating the orphan with a litter of fox cubs so she could eventually be released in the wild.

But it turns out Pudding prefers human companionship over her own kind.

Because Pudding is too tame now to survive in the wild, she will continue residing at the rescue facility, where she has become a star attraction. Pudding is gaining fans throughout the world via the rescue center’s Facebook page and global news reports.

The public should view Pudding as a rare exception. The National Fox Welfare Society wants everyone to understand that foxes are wild creatures and should remain in their natural habitat whenever possible.
