When you Want a Fur Coat but You Love Animals

November 21, 2018

Here is something you don’t see every day – a woman casually waiting for the subway train in Moscow with a full-grown pet fox perched on her shoulder.

A video of the unnamed blonde woman and her unusual pet has been doing the rounds on Russian social media for a week.

While having a fox for a pet is considered strange in the Western world, it’s really not that unusual in Russia. According to RT, in the 1950s geneticist Dmitry K. Belyaev started a breeding program to domesticate red foxes, and a sizeable population still exists in Russia today.
