  1. Very cute….but honestly he was acting very odd… sure hope this was in england where they have eradicated rabies… otherwise i’d be worried

      1. Sorry but i have worked in the veterinary field for 15 years…. no.. that is a possibility but actually most of them just act really off beat….stumbling.. slightly off… a few have shown no symptoms but died suspiciously after being attacked by wild animals… so no do not believe they behave how they do in cartoons its a myth… just general neurological symptoms are a possible sign ….this is from the humane societies websites description…In the “furious” form, wild animals may appear to be agitated, bite or snap at imaginary and real objects, and drool excessively. In the “dumb” form, wild animals may appear tame and seem to have no fear of humans.

        There are other signs, such as the animal appearing excessively drunk or wobbly, circling, seeming partially paralyzed, acting disorientated, or mutilating itself. However, most of these signs can also be indicative of other diseases like distemper or lead poisoning. There are few behavioral signs that are telltale of rabies alone.

        1. In the “dumb” form, wild animals may appear tame and seem to have no fear of humans. … this is why I would not trust this fox

  2. We don’t have rabies in England. However, city and suburban areas are full of red foxes.
    Red foxes are everywhere in well populated areas and many many of them are “ok” with people. This is because a lot of people feed them. In my childhood home there was a breeding pair who lived under our shed at the end of the garden and would happily let their Cubs play in the garden whilst we were about. We’d never interact per say. But a few of my friends had foxes that would eat from their hands or be petted. And this was the suburbs.
    In London itselfthe foxes are much more bold. This is unusual but not unheard of.

    Still a damn cute clip too!
