Father's Day Card + Story
Male red foxes are doting and indulgent dads, and they enjoy playing and roughhousing with their pups, as most dads do. While the pups are young, the father hunts every day, providing a food delivery service to the den for the cubs and their mother. After about three months, though, the cubs experience a rude awakening: no more free food! The father stops feeding them as a tactic to get the pups to leave the den. But he doesn’t make them go cold turkey, however—he buries food close to the den to help teach them how to sniff and forage for food. — Emily Deemer for Natural Habitat Adventures
