One of foxes mistook the girl for her mother and became very attached to her.
Last spring, a farmer found five little fluffy babies in his barn. At first she thought it was a cat that abandoned her kittens.
Coming closer, the man realized that they were small, newborn foxes.
The farmer’s daughter, Gemma, was worried about the kids, but didn’t touch them. The girl decided to wait and see if the mother would return the babies.
A day later, nothing has changed, the fox-mother did not appear. The family decided to place the redheads in a special shelter. There they were fed, and when they grew up, they were released to their place of residence.
However, it turned out quite differently.
Five days later, the fox opened her eyes and saw Gemma. The girl confused her mother and became very attached to her. Foxes and dogs go through an imprinting period during their first days of life. the cub remembers what he sees first.
Gemma could not resist the little red-haired beauty and led her to her. Now the girl and her friend Dan are raising a pet.
The fox is not a wild animal.
The rest of the litter is not used to people. They were sent to an orphanage and then released.
