This four month old fox cub came into care after being being grabbed by a dog. Her rescuer kept her overnight, half expecting to find she'd died but was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. A neighbour had shot a family of foxes, for taking hens, and this cub was the sole survivor, (apparently keeping free range hens equates to leaving them to their own devices in an open field!). The cub was brought to our vets at St.Ives for a check over and was found to have no bites luckily, but she did have a nasty conjunctivitis in the left eye.Poor Ming was terrified being handled when we treated the eye but once she realised we weren't going to kill her, calmed down after a couple of days. With care and good food she improved quickly but of course we couldn't return her home so arrangements were made to transfer her to the care of Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset where with the company of other foxes she could forget about humans and be released back to the wild in a safer location.
