Takota the marble fox was seized by the MNRF after being kept illegally as a pet.

He escaped from his home and when he was found his image was placed on the Team Chelsea Facebook page as a lost dog. It was quickly noticed he wasn't a dog and brought into our facility. Takota now lives full-time with us and his best buddy, Ash.
