The problem is that by rescuing foxes instead of humanely euthanizing them we run the risk of changing people's attitudes to the point where there will be a call for the cute and cuddly fox to be protected, like the feral horse issue when we call them (romantically) brumbies. I like horses but not as feral animals damaging delicate ecosystems. Similarly the various deer species that people think are cute are a problem. They may well be cute but they are doing much damage in our parks and reserves.
The Ornithological Congress in Christchurch NZ had an evening barbecue at a deer farm.

Father returned with plate of hamburgers, to wife and waiting small daughter. "Don't tell her they're Bambi".

They have been Bambiburgers ever since.
