A Facebook friend brought this to my attention and it was just too cute not to share.
I do have questions, though, like where the foxes came from in the first place. The Village doesn’t seem to have a website (at least not in English) so I’m not sure if these foxes descend from wild rescues, or from fur farm foxes, or whether they were captured directly from the wild (in which case, I’d feel less warm and fuzzy about the whole thing).
These foxes are socialized, but they are not domesticated. Still, many of the behaviours shown in the video (especially foxes mischievously tugging on the woman’s clothing) reminded me of the glorious day I got to spend with true domestic foxes while researching Fox Talk.
And yes, they really do sound like that. 🙂
What do you think? Would you visit Fox Village, or does the idea of captive foxes make you unhappy? Have you had encounters with wild foxes? How do they compare?
