As I've already told you, Simone, foxes are my favourite animals. (I even collect plush foxes. LOL!)

It's nice to read a story where people actually did what was right and that an animal was not abused but got a helping hand. I am just wondering how he can hunt if he is blind. I am guessing the parasite died and his sight came back. Could that be?

I'm wondering the same thing about the blindness. It's wonderful that the fox was treated for the parasitic condition but will it really be able to defend itself?

Thanks Simone!
