A red fox named Cropper was found by the roadside and rescued by The Fox Project in Turnbridge Wells in England. Due to his severe injuries and illness (toxoplasmosis), the rescue could not let him return to the wild.
For this reason, they have only two options: bring him down or find him a home. However, it was difficult to find a home for a wild animal. Things got stuck until Mike Trowler, a retired engineer appeared.
Mike said he was impressed by the fox’s behavior and spend his time dealing with them. For this reason, Mike brought Cropper home and nursed him back to health. In addition to taking care of injured foxes, he also helps orphaned fox cubs and nurtures them until they can return to the wild.
During his time in the new home, Cropper was cared for by Mike with patience, love and determination and became a member of Mike’s family. He often steals food from the dog’s plate, plays with cats, and loves to curl up with Mike. The two quickly formed an unlikely friendship, and the video below shows you their incredible story.
