One Eyed Fox
When I had chickens the fox was my enemy, but today upon seeing this distressed animal all I could think about was how to help it. I went out into the garden and despite making encouraging noises towards the fox it bolted off and jumped through a gap in the fence at the bottom of the garden into a neighbouring one. I have put down a little piece of cheese and left the door of the now defunct hen house and run wide open so the fox can seek refuge should it wish to do so.
My heart aches thinking how much pain the animal has suffered with the loss of the eye and the terrible mange and lacerations on its skin. I am moved to tears just thinking about this poor maligned creature. I have contacted a local wildlife hospital for advice on the fox and await to hear from them. I hope it is sooner rather than later.
