Scotland’s fox cubs need your help!

By Kirsty Brown

The Scottish SPCA is preparing for fox cub season by appealing to animal lovers in Scotland to donate much needed food.

Scotland's animal welfare charity had its busiest ever year in 2019 with over 11,000 wildlife casualties admitted.

Centre manager Steven Gray said: “As we are entering fox cub season, we are appealing for puppy meat and puppy milk.

“Last year, we cared for 90 foxes - over 50 of those were fox cubs.

“It can be a struggle to keep up with so many hungry mouths to feed.

“We expect to be even busier with admissions this year so we need help from members of the public.

“If anyone can help with food for these young mammals, we would appreciate anything that people can spare.”

Puppy meat can be dropped in to the Scottish SPCA Wildlife Rescue Centre in Fishcross, Clackmannanshire, or purchased from the wildlife centre’s Amazon wishlist.
