I have just looked at video pat lucky posted. That is not same one. The one I saw had a still photo of fox with sausage in its mouth. The post was the fox was a pet and had run up to a lady. Two other ladies had come to collect her. I'm sorry I can't find that post now but will phone all relevant agencies in your area tomorrow
Got a tame one suddenly appeared here again.....It (I think she is a she actually) is reasonably covered and not Mira's weight....Tail or not I actually don't know as this one sits and looks at me....Probably an older one finding winter harsh but wild and good at asking to be fed....I have been but the deal is she doesn't sneak back in daylight for a chicken....

What I was thinking though is the tame ones we get (oddly one at least was tattooed) do know about chicken being soft targets so are there any chickens in the area the other 2 were found?

They do seem to know the smell but these may not be tame (except for the tattoo....he couldn't have got that in the wild)

The other place to call if they haven't is the National Fox Welfare folk....A lot of people would contact them with an ill or injured fox. Their number is 01933 411996 ...or was last time I had to call them.

Has anyone got a link for the webpage too please? xx

Thanks pat lucky for finding my internet has just come back on. Sorry she not missing Mara but on the post sent to me it did say 'it was somebody's pet'. I will keep lookout for this lovely girl.
is she reunited?
It has a tail so that is not the one
I have found the fox with a sausage in its mouth
No sign that that fox is tame.
Plus it is here in Essex sorry
Shelagh Savage any luck locating that picture of a fox you spoke about please
Ah Mara is beautiful I really hope she is found soon.
We feed three foxes in our garden and one actually sits and waits for the food to go out they are lovely animals.
Please get home safe and very soon Mara xxxx
shelagh I don't do facebook so have told wildlife hospital to look. there are lots of tame foxes who people feed but this fox is not like the others as she has no tail, and looks far more like a dog.
Alerts sent to helper in WA13-16. SK9,10,11. CW4,9,10.
Have asked admin to ad a picture of Mara which I have taken from their web page. She is cute! Hope she is found if not the one Shelagh has mentioned.
There was a tame fox going round on Facebook . It had a sausage in its mouth. I have no idea if its this one,but it is safe and two people have come to get her. I have asked on my f/b page if people can find it.

All xd for Maras to be found
mara has been missing for over 2 weeks now. taken from her enclosure along with 2 other foxes none of whom could survive in the wild - hence their captivity. the other 2 delighted to say were found nearby but mara is still missing.very worried about her.
Sorry to see that FOX MARA WHO IS VERY TAME is missing.
