Gibbons found the foxes abandoned as pups and, worried for their survival, nursed them back to health.

Thankfully, the adorable foxes made a full recovery. But instead of returning to the wild, they decided to adopt Patsy as their dad.

Unsurprisingly, the trio receive a lot of attention from local children, so much so that schools in the area invite the unusual threesome to meet the kids.

“I now have people from all over the country and indeed the UK asking me for advice on looking after foxes,” Gibbons told The Irish Examiner.

“I’m no expert and I’m still learning from them day-by-day (but) I’m happy to advise as a lay person.”

As a keen animal lover, Patsy has 28 hens, 12 ducks, two dogs and two cats, as well as his three foxes. And apparently, they all get along very well.
