Sadly, this past weekend, the VLM had to say goodbye to one of our old friends. Our veteran foxy red lady passed away due to complications from a cancer that quickly spread. The female red fox, affectionately known as Dandelion, or Dandy, to the animal care staff, was 13 years old and had come to us from a local rehabilitator. Red foxes typically live to be 5 to 8 in the wild, and up to about 15 years in captivity.
So long, golden girl. We’ll miss you very much.
