By the way, I think I've once been to the Zoo of Brno many years ago, but I'm not sure ^^

What happened to him!?
woxys's avatar
he was removed from his cage because it will be destroyed. Filipek will probably go to other ZOO...

little mammals (including Filipek) lived in very small and old cages. All those cages will be ruined in these days, because absolutely new and moder exhibit for Alaska bears will be built there. So little mammals were removed from their cages.

I went there yesterday to say my last ,,goodbye" to Filipek, but he was already gone :(

The life in captivity is a kind of hell for our friends! They are worth nothing :X

Aw I love his name. I really love it. Never heard of such a name and it fits great to a fox.

Really? :D I do not like it XD but it is true that foxes are said to be very clever :D and if the Czechs want to say that some person is intelligent, they say ,,he/she has Filip" :rofl: it means ,,he/she has the ,,brain", she/he is clever" :D

by the way, Filipek means ,,little Filip", and Filip is a male Czech name... it would be Philip in English :D
