The Fox and the Hound at Feadon Farm

We have two celebrities at our Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre - Copper the fox and Jack the lurcher are national celebrities ever since they appeared on the BBC.

When Copper first came to us as a tiny cub, he and Jack quickly became firm friends and received national attention and adoration - our favourite picture is this one which appeared on the Daily Telegraph website, as part of their 'Pictures of the Day' series.

As Gary Zammit, our wildlife ranger said; "They just play fight there's never any malice in it."

"There's a bit of an instinctive thing in dogs to just kill a fox as soon as they meet, but other dogs are just fine.

"We can't walk Copper anywhere near public footpaths, we have to take him up on our private fields where there's no risk of bumping into a dog off the lead."

Don't forget you can meet and hand-feed Copper and our other two tame rescued foxes, Meadow and Todd, on a wildlife experience at Feadon Farm. Click here for more information.
