Thank you to everyone in Elliot Lake for their continued support and commitment to helping wildlife! This fox was recently admitted to Wild at Heart with a case of mange, which is caused by parasitic mites that burrow into the skin, causing extreme skin irritation. Animals with mange are often characterized by being underweight, losing fur, a strong smell, and having their eyes shut. With a few rounds of treatment and lots of time to recover and gain weight, this fox was released back into the wild!
Symbolically adopting a fox helps cover Wild at Heart’s medical and food costs to ensure these beautiful animals can return to the wild where they belong. You can symbolically adopt a fox here.
