Red Fox Release

Comments off 481 Views0


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.
