Alfie the wonderdog in Horsford Woods par Matthew Dartford Via Flickr : I thought about removing my dog from the shot, but felt that would be unfair somehow. And he does look quite cute and pathetic. Bless….
So today I had the pleasure of going to visit the wonderful folk at Wild Touch animal rescue & rehab and their awesome gang of resident beasts. These two are Bracken the fox and Hugin the raven!
I took a TONNE of photos of these guys and their animal buddies which I’ll be using for reference for some new illustrations soon, so keep an eye out :)
(ps. That’s Bracken’s ‘handler’s’ hand, Bracken is a descendent of a line of fur farm foxes, so rehabing and releasing her into the wild is impossible. Same with Hugin, he was clipped by his ‘owner’ too early and can’t fly properly. They’re most definitely not pets.)
