Americans rarely see foxes, as they are rare in the United States. However, England has plenty of them. Because people build their homes next to the forests in the area, foxes are put out and have nowhere to go. That means they started going to the city to visit people. It’s almost common for every homeowner near the woods to see a fox in their backyard. Though this sounds incredible and nearly impossible, it’s true! In fact, foxes can befriend humans. While that sounds crazy, it gets even weirder. Some foxes might even share the food their human friends offer with another adorable animal species!
Foxes In England
As we previously talked about, it is not uncommon to see a fox running along the street in England. The English have gotten quite used to it, especially at night. Having a fox dig a hole in the backyard or jumping into it is normal. Most are shocked to see that these animals are friendly, though!
Since these people must live so close to the foxes, it is only natural that they want to feed them. Wildlife officials have actually said it’s good to feed foxes because they can no longer hunt for themselves. Without the food, they might die.
Can’t Get Their Own Food
These poor foxes can’t get their own food because there have been many houses built near to the forest. Since there are fewer things the foxes can eat because there is less land for them to roam, they have to get food elsewhere.
