  • Velecito the fox has been taken to a nature reserve in Ojén

Velecito, the young fox that keeps appearing on the Axarquía coast, has been taken to a nature reserve in Ojén after he was found for the third time in as many weeks.

Rescuers believe that Velecito has been raised by humans in the area and that is why, despite having been released into the wild, he always finds his way back to the coast.

When police received a call from Caleta de Vélez on Monday, they identified the young fox and he was taken to the reserve where police say "he will get all the food and care he needs in a natural environment".
