Operation mangy fox is a success!

Last week Laurie got a call about a little fox that had been seen in town not looking very well. When she responded she was able to locate the poor thing (it looked like it had mange) but unable to catch it as it led her on a merry chase through the woods! Luckily the people kept an eye out for it and when they discovered it under their front porch the next day, Laurie, Lisa and I headed over to try to catch it.
It just so happened we were armed with our newly acquired equipment, thanks to the Flatbread fundraiser...and our efforts were a success!!

The poor little thing is now at Tuft's getting treatment. It will probably be 6 weeks or more of treatment, but in the end we will be able to release it back in it's own home area. 

I have to apologize for a lack of posts! My computer hard drive fried. I am totally lost and for the most part am only getting on the computer when at work. I am also praying I can recover all my pics. and info. that were on the damn thing that hadn't been transferred to an external hard drive yet. (Pretty much all the 2011 rehab pics!!!! Insert BIG scream here!)
It also means no quick way to get photos from camera to blog. I can't download them to the work computer to get them onto the blog, so hopefully some visits to my parents house will give me an opportunity got get some on here....or I may be borrowing Laurie's laptop for a bit.... 
So in advance....I'm sorry if some of the updates may be a little boring with no cute pics and just a lot of blah, blah, blah to look at! Right now you're looking at the last picture I managed to get on here.


  1. oooh...that poor little fox looks so...sad! but i'm sure he'll be feeling much better...and more like a frisky little fox...after he's nursed back to health!

    (sorry 'bout your comp...i can relate to that...couple of years ago, my laptop started making weird sounds...and then it keeled over. i NEVER backed anything up...ALL my pic's were on there! i learned the hard i have a back up external drive...that reminds me...i have to go save everything to it now, haven't done it lately! oops!)
    happy weekend to you and your furry friends!

  2. So glad you were able to intervene and save the little thing. Foxes are getting a bad rep because of rabies/biting someone down here in VA. They are so beautiful...:)JP
