Foxes and Coyotes

IMG_5500There are certain wild animals that should only be handled by trained individuals. As tempting as it is to rescue a fox or coyote pup, you will likely do more harm than good. They are not dogs; they are not pet material. If the pups are handled or kept for any length of  time, it is extremely difficult to prepare them to be released back to the wild.
