Wonderful fox news via @_Poots_: Rosie the fox cub has become best friends with terrier Maddy.
The Daily Mail aren’t known for their fox-friendly outlook, but they’ve sure won our hearts with this story.
Rosie, a 15-week-old fox cub, was left abandoned when her father killed most of her litter. Now she has formed a firm bond with terrier Maddy, a Lakeland Patterdale cross, at the home of her owner Richard Bowler near Corwen, North Wales.
After a too-long absence, we’re delighted to say that regular Fox Pops service will resume very soon. Enjoy the sunshine, fox fans!
In light of the tragic urban fox attack on four-week-old Denny Dolan, Boris Johnson made some very strong comments about our urban foxes:
“This sort of attack, though terrible, is rare, but we must do more to tackle the growing problem of urban foxes. They may appear cuddly and romantic but foxes are also a pest and a menace, particularly in our cities.”
We put it to our panel: does Boris have a point?
Here is a great gallery of foxshots:

I know what you’re about to say. “Hey Fox Pops! How come you never post actual Fox Pops anymore?”
All we can say is: “BE PATIENT, FOX FANS!”
