“Fox in Socks” Turns to Fox in Box
Five-year-old Dylan, her older brother, and their grandmother Rosalyn Caballero did the proper thing and came to the six-week-old fox’s rescue. In front of a Local TV, Dylan said that she found the whole situation funny, as the baby fox thought their dog was the mom.
The only stops made along the way were at homes with sprinklers on. The baby fox seemed to be thirsty and had a healthy amount of water whenever possible. When the family took their dog home, they called the Southwest Wildlife Conservancy Center and headed back outside.
They got a container to keep the fox safe and also went back to investigate the area. They couldn’t spot a mom or other foxes around, so they captured Foxy, as the kids affectionately named the female, without touching it.
SWCC to the Rescue & Optimistic About the Fox
Southwest Wildlife came to the rescue shortly and said they were able to syringe feed it for a few days, but it then understood how to eat out of a dish.
This wasn’t the first time the Caballero family spotted foxes in the area before. They even took videos without disturbing the “wildlife.” They were used to seeing foxes in groups and found it odd that Foxy was solo.
Preston was upset about the fox and didn’t want it to go. He was also worried that they might have to put it down, but when the SWCC showed up, they assured him that they wouldn’t do that. The conservancy is optimistic about Foxy’s future.
