The fox was purchased by two young women, who also learned the hard way that wild animals aren't good house pets. They dropped the fox off at a local animal shelter, claiming to have found her on a beach, but eventually confessed to obtaining the fox through her previous owner. The women then made a generous donation toward the fox's care, according to Wildwoods.
"The animal control officer checked again with the man who had been reported by his neighbors," Wildwoods wrote. "He said he had 'gotten rid' of his fox. He was vague as to specifics."
The fox, who is about 4 months old, is now in Wildwoods' care, until a suitable sanctuary can be found for her - preferably one where she can be an educational animal and help teach people, according to Wildwoods. She can't be released to the wild because she was raised around humans.
