Why? by woxys Why? by woxys
Red fox (vulpes vulpes, liska obecna) from Pasíčka, station for animals, who are handicaped or who simply can not survive in the wild; Czech republic :heart:


NEWEST PHOTO -----> ADORABLE BABY WOLVES!


Story of the photo: this fox has only one eye. It was found in the forest. Expersts say that some myslivci probably used this fox to train their dogs, although it is illegal. One-eyed fox fortunately has a nice home and lovely care now... It lives in a big cage with two other saved red foxes, they have some grass and tree trunks there, comfortable looking boxes to hide and very tasty looking meat. When I saw them, fur of all three foxes was literally shining and foxes seemed very relaxed. I was very satisfied when I saw their living conditions. I bet they have nice lives now :heart:

EDIT: I am NOT the one who blame the myslivci! EXPERTS from the station say that. The fox has also NO teeth and there are probably more indications, that myslivci did this to the fox. But stop flaming me for just publishing the opinion of the experts :P :P also, people, who think they can surely know "how it really happened" are arrogant - it is so stupid that they think they know everything just through looking at the photo. Experts know this fox in person, they saved her and treat her - they simply DO KNOW BETTER. Deal with that.

EDIT NO.2: HONESTLY, PEOPLE - SPEAKING ABOUT SOMETHING YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MAKES YOU LOOK A BIT STUPID ;) SITTING IN USA, CANADA, FINLAND OR AUSTRALIA, YOU CAN HARDLY KNOW, WHO MYSLIVCI ARE. SO BETTER NOT SPEAK ABOUT THEM. COMMENTING ABOUT SOMETHING YOU DO NOT KNOW IS A BIT EMBARRASING FOR YOU ;)

about ,,IT WAS NOT INJURED BY DOGS, AS NO INJURIES ARE VISIBLE" - I saw a baby fox few days ago, who was brought by myslivci THEMSELVES, and they THEMSELVES said that their dog hunted and injured the fox kit. Fox was injured only few hours ago. And still I had to hold the baby in my arms to be able to touch and feel the injuries. They were all hidden under her SUMMER fur, so no photos show them. Fox in the picture is in her FLUFFY WINTER FUR. So your theory ,,myslivci's dogs did not do it, because no scars are visible" is very naive, as fluffy fur could hide EVERYTHIG.

So again, better not comment, because you know nothing about myslivci ;)

FUR ON YOUR BACK IS BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS!

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: Red fox (vulpes vulpes)
Location: red fox is native to North America, whole Europe, whole Asia, north Africa and it was introduced to Australia
Size: 100 cm long body + 45 cm long tail, 40 cm high weight: 12 kg
Diet: red foxes are omnivorous and are highly opportunistic, so they eat almost everything from small insects to cranes. Red foxes hunt insects, worms, fish, birds, mice, rabbits, crayfish, baby deers. But they eat also fruit (apples, blackberries...) and plants.
Conservation status: Least Concern (the most common carnivora)
Interesting facts: red fox can hide its food to find it later | usually five cubs are born blind and helpless in the burrow | foxes have many colour variations: usually – ginger-red, but also black or silver, Unfortunately, red fox is kept by fur farms and some ----- torture them just to gain their fur. Red foxes are also hunted by so called ,,sportmen“ | red foxes suffer from rabies | red fox is considered to be vermit | red foxes produce pretty weird sounds XD | foxes in the wild live only some 4 years, but they can reach 12 years in captivity
Enemies: golden eagles, gray wolves, cougars, lynxes, coyotes, badgers, wolverines
Legend: foxes play important role in many myths and legend. Due their inteligence, they have become symbol of slyness and cunning. They are also very popular animals, who have role in many fairy tales. In the Czech republic, author Rudolf Tesnohlidek wrote very famous book about very clever hand-rised vixen called Bystrouska. I loved that book and also it funny happy end!

Kreténi.. Lidi dokážou neskutečné věci. Známému se po výstřelu na poli "záhadně" ztratil pes - jel na koni a on se holt zapomněl opodál. Ale rozhodně zvěř nehonil - byl to kliďas, žádný lovec - ve stáji si hrával s koťaty a žádnému z nich nezkřivil ani chlup. Nejironičtější bylo, že se prostě ztratil, než si stihl všimnout, že pes za ním neběží (nebral ten výstřel jako potencionální hrozbu, říkal si, že se někde střílí - poblíž je střelnice Policie), už tam nebyl..nebyl nikde. Prostě ho uklidili, aby zametli stopy. :threaten:

TO JE NESKUTEČNÉ, co někteří lidi dokážou..! Taky bych je nechala předhodit psům, jako tréninkový materiál. Lidská krutost a blbost někdy skutečně nezná hranic a tohle je toho jen důkazem. Liška je pro ně prostě "škodná".. nemyslím, že všichni myslivci jsou takoví ha**li, ale bohužel je to o lidech. Mnohdy mám pocit, že na téhle planetě jsme škodní spíše my.. :disbelief:

PS: bylo by možné použít některé fotky Terezky jako ilustrační pro blog, pokud uvedu zdroj a autora - tebe?

:( its just terrible what people do to innocent animals just for fun. truth I think that it's just mean how cruel humans can be. they never did anything to us, as for hunting goes I think it should only be used as a means to survive.

People should stop saying a dog attacked it. It would have scars everywhere if a dog had got it properly. Humans must have done this; the eye has no scars around it and that indicated it wasn't scratched or bitten out.

Good job, Woxys, give the know it alls what for.

oh. I hold a baby fox in my arms, which was 100% attacked by dogs, because dogs hunted it. The hunters THEMSELVES brought the fox to my friend and they used the dogs to hunt that fox. That baby was in its SHORT SUMMER FUR and still no injuries were visible. She WAS injured, I could feel her injuries under my fingers, but fur covered them. She was injured only few hours before I hold her, but still no injury was visible, as fur covered them. And it was SHORT SUMMER FUR.

This fox is in her LONG WINTER FUR. Its body can be full of scars, just hidden under fur.

But on their muzzle you'd expect to see some scars. I mean the fox in this image; it doesn't seem to have been savaged by dogs.
