A trio of orphaned fox cubs are being looked after by Secret World Wildlife Rescue volunteers.

Dillan and Dougal, named by staff, arrived at the East Huntspill charity’s headquarters in New Road after losing their mother, who is believed to have died.

They were soon joined by Tobermory who has also somehow lost contact with his mother.

All three cubs are being reared by animal carer Dan Bryant.

He said: “We are very cautious when orphans come in.

“If we can get them back with their mother, they stand a much higher chance of surviving with a matriarch to teach them how to hunt and hide within their own social group.

“Fox cubs also tame very easily and need to be reared correctly to revert to their wild behaviours.”
