Centre Manager Colin Seddon said: “As we are now in fox cub season, we are going through a lot of the food they eat which is puppy meat.“We are currently caring for 28 fox cubs and it can be a struggle to keep up with the demand for food.“This year our naming theme is ‘The Muppets’ and so far we have Rizzo, Animal, Pepe and Prawn.“Anyone who comes across fox cubs, that have their eyes fully open and their ears pricked who aren’t injured or in distress, should keep a distance and check back in an hour or two as vixens will often move their cubs from one location to another and if they are disturbed, they will leave the cubs and come back for them later. … [Read more...] about Scotland’s fox cubs need your help!

His departure means Change has lost two lead candidates in Scotland in the space of a month: its first choice, former Labour staffer Joseph Russo, was forced to quit over offensive social media posts.
