I knew a guy in the UK who had found a cub and tried to domesticate it. It made for a very nervous and unpredictable adult, not a good pet at all and really not a good thing for the Aus environment.It was a Healthy looking fox. I have been reading NSW are only now trying to ban the legal breeding and keeping Foxes as pets in the state.
"NSW the only state in Australia where foxes have not been declared a feral species, but that fox rescue organisations have now been established in NSW and are rescuing adult foxes and their young and encouraging the public to “adopt a fox” as a pet."
Please be careful describing a wild animal as domesticated rather than tamed , there is a huge difference. feral animals cause a great harm on our environmentI have spent a little time with a domesticated fox. Taken as a pup and trained. Incredibly smart dog. Awesome hunting companion. But yes twitchy in crowds.
