Why does Mr. Evildoer need a fishing float?
Today Mr. Evildoer has brought a fishing float to his home (as I was previously telling here).
And I immediately understood that he took this, seemingly useless in a fox daily life object as a toy for his cubs. This theory will probably make professional zoologists smile, but why not? Above is a photograph that I made while watching the 3 months old fox youngsters play in August couple of years ago. Almost all their games were around a very similar object, the fishing float! Each one of them wanted to have this toy all for himself. In addition to that, I have seen floats, heavily bitten by tiny teeth, next to almost all the fox burrows in the neighborhood.
