Foxes are supposed to be clever and smart, right? Well, that quality must come to them later in life because from the looks of the little guy in our story, they sure aren’t born with it!
One day, a man walks into his backyard to find a baby fox with a dog food can stuck on his head. Obviously distressed, the little fellow stumbles about the yard, crying and bumping into everything in his path. It takes only a moment for the Good Samaritan to lift the unwanted helmet off the fox’ head, and that should be the end of the story, right?
Well, not so fast. The little fox seems a bit upset that his headgear is gone, and appears to be looking around for it. Soon, he finds it and begins sniffing it to make sure it is, indeed, the right can. There must have been a little food left in the bottom of the can because it looks as though he is all set to dive in once more!
After a bit, the fox moves on to explore something else that has captured his interest. It must be the mom in me that did happen to notice, however, that the man who freed the little fox neglected to pick up the can! Instead, it remains in the middle of the yard, taunting the little guy, and serving as a potent reminder of what can happen when you go in without an exit plan.
Let’s hope that ‘cleverness gene' kicks in before the curious critter decides to stick his head back into the offending can! There might not be a kind stranger around to save him next time!!
