A Miaoli County animal shelter will put a silver fox up for adoption if the owner doesn’t claim it within seven days, after the rare exotic pet was found wandering in a suburb of Miaoli City in recent days.
Members of the public reported an unusual-looking stray dog with a Buddhist lucky charm hanging from its neck in the Fuxing Mountain area on the outskirts of Miaoli City a few days ago. The “dog” was chased by other stray dogs and escaped into long grass.
The Miaoli County Animal Protection and Epidemic Prevention Office successfully trapped the animal Monday, October 23.
The animal was identified as a silver fox, suspected to be an exotic pet imported from abroad. However, the animal was unchipped.
Animal protection officers implanted a chip into the fox, and said that the owner has 7 days to claim it. If no claim is made within that period, the animal will be put up for adoption in accordance with Article 14, Paragraph 2 of the Animal Protection Act.
