A blast from the past. Enough to make your skin crawl! In March 2000, we had a little fox cub brought into us (Russet) absolutely covered in Ticks, in fact we removed over 1000 of them and some still remained as they were too small to get off so had to be treated. Little Russet pulled through and was released back healthy with her adopted brothers and sisters, but it just shows how a little fox cubs body can become quickly over run with parasites and their immune system compromised.
