Orphaned Fox Cubs Play With Cardboard Box at New York Sanctuary

Adorable fox cubs had the time of their lives playing with a cardboard box at a New York state sanctuary, footage shared on April 15 shows.

Video posted to YouTube by the Orphaned Wildlife Center, in Otisville, captured the orphaned cubs play fighting and jumping in and out of the box.

Founded by Jim Kowalczik, Susan Kowalczik, and Kerry Clair in 2015, the center nurtures its animal residents in the hope they can be returned to the wild.

The baby foxes are being temporarily housed at the center, after both their parents were killed.

The center said in its YouTube caption that the cubs were “skinny and terrified” when they first arrived.

“Now look at them! So happy, little pot bellies and tucked in warm every night. Makes ya feel good to see this for sure,” the center wrote.

The center often shares videos and updates about the animals in its care to its YouTube channel and Facebook page. Credit: Kerry Clair via Storyful
