This really blew me away.
I guess we’re here making an assumption that the fox knowingly approached the humans for the purpose of receiving help or comfort.
I’d like to think that in the past the fox has recognized these humans, these animals markedly unlike themselves and most other things. And then when the fox felt itself to be in danger greater than its strength and wit could solve, he approached us.
Or he’s near humans enough to get his head stuck in a bottle… and that same close proximity saved him. It doesn’t matter. The story is still super romantic.
Warm feelings all around.
Have a good weekend,
