A baby red fox, approx. 5 months old, entered a home in New Bedford through a doggy door. This adorable little nugget is at Cape Wildlife Center in Barnstable to build its strength & hopefully be released in a few months! #Boston25pic.twitter.com/g0fB4snUrz
Staff at the wildlife center estimated the fox is about five weeks old, and said they’ll work with the animal for a few months until it is strong enough to be released back into the wild.
Animal control officers are using the unexpected visit as an example to warn people not to interfere with wildlife because this is the time of the year when the public is most likely to encounter baby wildlife.
