Red Fox Rescue and Release with Toronto Wildlife Centre Dec 1, 2013

 Back in Sept -  I was able to trap this adult red fox who had mange.
Toronto Wildlife Centre set up the trap and with the help of neighbours we kept an eye out hoping to catch him.
One night I was going to close the trap and there he was inside the trap. Andrew (TWC rescue) came out immediately and top the fox in to the centre.

 Over the next 2 months he was in rehab and this is the shot I took before we captured him at the outdoor centre.

Now comes the release
Opened the cage and away he went.  He was released in the same yard as he was captured.  He knew where he was.

 He left the yard at a run and within a few minutes he came back and checked out the back yard smelling and looking around. 

 As you can see he is now an amazing looking fox. Very large and very beautiful.  thanks TWC.
