Ben the fox at 15 days old. See SWNS story SWSYfox. A man adopted an orphaned fox cub after it crawled into his jacket sleeve for a nap. Les Hemstock, 51, was visiting a wildlife sanctuary where a friend was working, when he met a family of cubs brought in by a member of the public. The skulk were starving, freezing and riddled with ticks, and in desperate need of medical attention if they were to survive. One tiny cub - now called Ben - wandered straight over to Les, making a bed in the sleeve of his jacket where he fell fast asleep.
