phox phacts

This adorable little babby fox cub wandered into a beauty salon in Tunbridge Wells this week and hid behind a filing cabinet. Mama couldn’t be found and the ickle one was far too little to make it on his own. But the RSPCA took him and will raise and release him.

D’awww, amirite?

But then there was this story. Did you see the one about the Russian scientist who likes to wander around Chernobyl?

Brave woman, interesting story. Worth a read.

At the very end, there’s a video that shows her hiding in her car in terror of what looks like a perfectly healthy, strangely friendly fox in the woods. That’s worth a watch, too.

She explains in the video that friendliness and fearlessness has been found, in foxes at least, to be an early symptom of rabies. Which makes a horrible sense, when you think about it.

Great. Now I’ll never dare to be St Francis.
