So long fine friend

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.

Here is a nice representation of the beautiful red gold coat that many red foxes have.

Here, Dandy is hunkered down in the snow. This is often how red foxes sleep when it's snowy outside

So long, golden girl.  We’ll miss you very much.
