A Chinese couple was left baffled after their new pet, whom they found outside their house on a rainy day, turned out to be a fox
Beijing: A couple in China’s Guangdong province were shocked to discover that the dog which they had decided to adopt was actually a fox.
The man found the animal sitting outside his house on a rainy day last week and decided to offer the creature a home. His wife gave the animal a bath, but she noticed that the animal’s tail was unusually fluffy for a dog.
It also had a ferocious-looking set of teeth and a pungent scent. The animal even managed to escape after biting open the iron cage, but luckily it was recovered on the house's balcony.
On examination, authorities said the animal was actually an Arctic fox and was abandoned after someone tried to raise it as a pet.
