Woman turns fur of pet fox into charm after its tragic death

An animal lover has told how she had some fur and whiskers from the abandoned fox cub she brought up alongside her pet dog made into a lucky charm that she wears 24/7 - after the beloved animal was tragically run down. A video of Vixey the vixen and Luna the Labrador playing together was likened to the Disney movie The Fox and the Hound when Gemma Holdway, 22, posted it online back in 2019. Then an animal science and management student, Gemma became a surrogate mum to the cub after it was found at two days old, nestling in hay on the farm where Gemma lives in Bath, Somerset.
