It’s not really a solid white fox. It has normal colored ears– almost like a wild marbled fox.
However, it also looks like its body is a pale cream color with some lovely Irish markings mixed in.
Again, this fox was not selected for tameness at all. It’s hard to do that when you’re shooting at them on a regular basis.
And yet it is sort of spotted.
These are traits that likely exist within the fox population as a whole, but they only occasionally show up in the wild.
They are not necessarily associated with breeding for tameness, as the Belyaev fox farm experiment suggested.
I laughed hysterically at that shirt they are advertising at the end.
The Emperor of Exmoor was a red deer stag that was legally shot last October. He was believed to have been the largest wild animal in Britain when he was killed.
His death became an animal rights cause célèbre.
As for my hunting exploits this week, I haven’t had a chance to shoot at the Monarch of Mt. Zion, but I did fire one off at the Viceroy. I didn’t get him.
Kent is also where the 26-pound fox was killed earlier this year. For comparison, that’s about the size of a small bitch coyote.
This part of England must have a lot of different foxes to have speckled ones, white ones, and giant ones.
