Although not all animals are fit to live in the wild, some do better living alongside humans. Here is the story about Pudding, a fox cub. Pudding was too tame to release back into the wild. Because of her special circumstances, the friendly cub would not make it in the wild since it is too friendly and couldn’t fend for itself.
Pudding was rescued by a tiny fox club located in Yorkshire called The National Fox Welfare Society. The fox club rescues and rehabilitates foxes as well as other animals that have been injured. Most every one of their foxes is released back into the wild, but Pudding was a special case.
When Pudding was rescued, they had plans to immediately integrate her with the other foxes, until something happened. When they were about to put her into the enclosure, a tree fell, blocking the entrance to the enclosure. Pudding had to spend time inside the house while they worked on the fallen tree.
All of the other foxes in the enclosure were fine, but it took a while to get the tree chopped. Once the entrance was cleared, it was too late. Pudding had already become too reliant on her human caretakers.
Pudding is absolutely adorable with her beautiful yellow eyes and lovely red fur coat. This cub looks like a little puppy.
Although the club tried to integrate her into more than one litter of foxes, it just did not work. Pudding became too familiar with humans and decided that she belonged indoors. Because of her special circumstances, the fox couldn’t be released back into the wild.
That was when that the fox club had a novel idea. Instead of making Pudding go back into the wild, Pudding became the official ambassador for the organization where she remains a permanent resident.
The fox is very playful and affectionate towards humans. She greeted her handlers wagging her tail, just like a dog. Pudding’s adorable face made her appearance on all their merchandise (mugs, T-shirts, etc.)
