This owner’s tribute to beloved pet fox may move you to tears

A fox owner in the US has posted a heart-breaking tribute to his beloved pet after he passed away.

RonRon the fox died peacefully in his sleep yesterday and his devastated owner Eric took to YouTube to post a beautiful memorial to his departed pet.

While it is illegal to keep a fox as a pet in Ireland, it is legal in a lot of US States and even the UK.

Eric’s YouTube channel views like a diary of RonRon's life and you can clearly see the duo were the best of friends.

The average lifespan of a red fox is about five years, but RonRon was 10 days shy of eight years old when he passed.

* You may need the tissues for this one, it’s a tough watch.

So sad...

Sleep well RonRon.
