Female, 5 months

One of mummy Patience’s beautiful cubs.

Named after her white-tipped tail and playful personality, she was very close to her mum and her brother “Socks”.

Tipsy grew into a beautiful juvenile vixen. Just as she started to explore life beyond the garden she grew up in and find her way in the world, she was run over and killed by a hit and run driver. She was only 5 months old. Both we and her brother were bereft.

She became part of the statistics that sadly show that usually only one in five fox cubs lives to their first birthday.
