Fox Cub and Mother feeding video clip

This is a short sequence captured last night on the trail camera. It's the first time I've filmed a vixen nursing a young fox cub, so I have to say that I'm really delighted to have this footage even if the quality is less than perfect.

Filmed on the Bushnell Trophy Cam HD

    It's so cute to see a cub "pushing" against her belly, this is what cats usually do 😀

    Mum seems to think that it's a chance for some grooming! Exceptional footage. Excellent :yes:

    Darko, it's the first time I've 'seen' this, at least apart from proper wildlife films. Very sweet. 😀

    Adele, thanks. A lot of luck that they stayed in shot, but I'm really pleased they did. Mum is very scruffy and has a bald patch near her shoulder. Not mange from what I've been able to see, but more like the bold vixen we had a few years ago… just loss of hair. Odd, but she seems healthy enough.
