They are one of the most widely distributed members of the order Carnivora. The red foxes are found in the entire Northern Hemisphere, including most of North America, Europe, and Asia, plus parts of North Africa. These foxes are listed as the least concern by the IUCN.

Fantastic Foxes: Their Secret World: Episode 1 Release Date
The first episode of Fantastic Foxes: Their Secret World premiered on 27th August 2021, Friday at 7 pm British Summer Time. In this episode of Fantastic Foxes: Their Secret World, we got to see the seven adorable rescued Fox Cubs. There were named Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La and Ti. These seven cubs were actually rescued from a building site. When two workers removed a wall, one of the adorable fox cubs happened to fall down. She was very small and brown in colour. From the same area, they rescued six more of her siblings. The area was thoroughly searched to make sure that there were no more remaining fox cubs there.
The area from which they were rescued was fully destroyed. Although they searched for their mother, the vixen was nowhere to be found. It is a pretty harsh thing to separate a mother from her children, but they had no choice since the whole area was being destructed. Now, the rescuers had to play the role of the mother for these seven baby cubs. The cubs were just newborn babies who hadn’t opened their eyes or ears yet. These so-called fantastic baby foxes need to be looked after with the utmost care and affection during these days.
What Happens to Do, Re, Mi, Fa, So, La and Ti?
The cubs are now being cared for at a wildlife center in Surrey. After they are fully matured, they will be released back into the wild. The presenter of the show Steve Backshell says that it will be hard for them to survive in the wild, and they will come across many dangers. He also adds that thousands of foxes are killed every year in accidents. To know what happens to these cubs, next tune in to the next episode of Fantastic Foxes: Their Secret World, which airs on 33rs September 2021 at 7 pm British Standard Time. You can watch the new episode at My5 once the episode airs.
