Because employees at my mine site feed the foxes, they have become like dogs.
Some truck drivers have their own foxes that will jump up into their trucks and drive around with them for a shift. They jump up on the picnic tables
at work while ppl are sitting smoking, then they will curl up and go to sleep.
They will rub up on you and sit and beg at your feet.
All because idiots started feeding them.
15 years ago the old mine manager took in 3 bear cubs because they were abandoned.
They became his pets... he would let them sleep in his trailer, feed them, all the while he was staying in there with them.
Eventually they had to be relocated because they were causing trouble.
But it’s because of idiots that these animals become reliant on human interaction.
Don’t get me wrong though, if I came across a fox kit, that I knew was gonna die left on its own. I’d be bringing him home.
