Pets are great. There's always someone waiting for you and loving you unconditionally. But some people go further and keep wild animals as pets. So once again, who have resourceful humans managed to tame? A raven, a raccoon, a fox... a bear?!

Warning! All the owners of the wild animals featured below strongly DO NOT recommend following their example.

Alice the fox was taken in as a small puppy from the breeders. At first, the fox lived in the house together with the family, but the red beauty had a nasty habit of damaging furniture and bullying other pets. Then the fox was placed in a separate outdoor kenned. In addition to Alice's desire to chew up everything around her, the fox has a playful temperament and a luxurious coat.

The couple says that they decided to take this step because Messi had a lot of health issues and because of that faced the risk of being put to sleep. The big cat still suffers from chronic cystitis and muscle atrophy.
