For animals that are considered pests by some humans, the world can be a pretty scary place. At any moment, these unwanted creatures could come face to face with someone who wants to get rid of them by any means necessary, and their lives are constantly under threat.
In Australia, one of these species is especially in danger. The cuddly-looking European Red Fox is a threat for native wildlife, so people are actually encouraged to shoot them on sight.
This nearly spelled disaster for a baby fox named Willa when she encountered a farmer who instantly went searching for his gun…
We’re so happy that Willa was able to find a home where he can roam free and hang out with his best friend Izzy! Hopefully Australia finds a way to let these adorable animals live freely some day.
