Today my hubby took a red fox in his lunch bag.
In the 1950’s, a study was begun to investigate how domestication of animals might have happened. Foxes were chosen, based on levels of friendliness (or rather, in the beginning, less evasive or aggressive behaviour). By the fourth generation, changes were evident – the foxes wagged their tails, and were eager for human contact.
As the study went on, not only did the foxes become more dog-like in behavior, they became cuter – more delicate with drop ears, curlier tails and variation in fur color!
