Hey Foxman, definitely worth adding that info to the 'Foxhunting Comeback' thread. i've heard one or two very similar stories. Unbelievable (if they weren't true)!
Odds ans sods rescued with varying success, mostly just seems to be giving the animal a warm, relatively stress-free environment in which to die.
Most rewarding was four fox cubs taken in at a very tender age as part of the Fox Project's wild fox rehab scheme (well worth doing if you can btw).
Three from one family and a feisty vixen soloist (boy, she was a handful, first to escape too, though recaptured thankfully).
Wonderful to watch them develop so quickly at that young age and to see how innate their hunting behaviour is (and even choice of prey, which was VERY interesting - we used roadkill).
All were successfully released and we know that the feisty vixen ended up having a family of her own.
Fantastic, can't recommend it highly enough.
