That's what you often hear about fox village. However, many animal protection organizations around the world have called for the closure of this tourist site. The reason given is that the Zao village foxes have signs of violence, not quite cute as they appear. Photo: Marischkaprue, Wellenodilia.

Anna Davis, a member of the animal protection organization in New Jersey (USA), decided to visit the famous fox village in 2018.

Zao fox village is divided into two areas. In the first section, visitors will see foxes raised in cages. Foxes in the remaining areas are free and free to play with guests in the wild natural setting.

After receiving the dry-food bag, Davis was guided by staff safety rules. This person said visitors should not try to touch or let hand into the fox mouth to avoid being bitten. Officials warned that although the foxes were cute, they were still wildlife in nature. However, if you pay an extra fee, you can comfortably cuddle tamed foxes. "That's not the act of a conservation area," Davis said. Photo: Mika, Yongyong Kuran, Caitlin, Normen Schmidt.

Entering the amusement park with the fox, Davis continued to be disappointed. The first thing that upset her was the stench. The blog owner Japan Starts Here also shared this opinion. He said his first impression upon getting off the taxi was the smell of urine rushing up his nose. Photo: Wikimedia.

The scent is not the only inhibiting thing to visitors here. The fox's behavior and appearance are also unusual. Tourists can easily see there are many excessive foxes. Many people commented that these are cute images. However, obesity has never been considered a good sign in both humans and animals. Guinness record once rejected the "fattest pet" category to avoid animals being overfed. Photo: Pinterest.

Some other foxes are too thin with patchy fur, shed a lot. This caused Davis to be concerned about fox health care. She also noticed the seeds like cat food scattered around. "From the high platform, visitors drop food for dozens of foxes. I see a pile of pink pastes, covered by flies, look really terrible on paper plates of food," Davis revealed. . Photo: Rove.

"I saw more than 150 Japanese red foxes and 6 other rare species. It was a July day and the heat made the smell of feces so horrible," Davis said. The blog owner of Japan Starts Here again noticed the strange behavior of the fox. "They behave in an unusual way. About 70% of foxes demand to eat, like dogs that hang around the kitchen right after dinner is served," the person wrote. Photo: Shutterstock.

It is unusual for the foxes to grab customers, cling, pull clothes to demand food. Rob Laidlaw, representative of Zoocheck, a wildlife protection organization, said the sign showed a tense, conflicting habitat. "Here, people put more than 100 foxes in an area of less than 2,000 m2. This has led to a conflict in the division of territory and food. I have seen 6 foxes walking together in the wild. However, they mainly appear alone and often live in a large area, "Rob Laidlaw argues. Photo: The Dodo.

Rob Laidlaw also criticized the fox village against their principles. On the home page, Zao village introduces itself as a conservation facility, which works to bring foxes to a better life. "From the moment you charge a customer for animal entertainment, the concept of sanctuary has disappeared. It's merely a job to make money. If you really love animals, this place is just heartbreaking." "he said. Photo: Japan Starts Here.
