The fox was taken to the Mercer County Wildlife Center where it is being nursed back to health.

According to National Geographic, the red fox breed's "resourcefulness has earned it a legendary reputation for intelligence and cunning."earned a legendary reputation for intelligence and cunning."  When living among humans, red foxes will often feed on garbage left in dumpsters or garbage cans.

We'll work on getting updates on the red fox if they become available.  In the meantime, it's a good excuse to look at some adorable pictures of other baby animals.
