A mum-of-two has hand-reared a fox cub that she lets play with her young children - despite it having a tendency to nip strangers.

Natalie Reynolds, 35, keeps Jasper the fox with her three dogs, cat and horses at their home and even takes it out for walks on a lead.

But despite her insisting the eight-month-old fox is domesticated, an animal charity argued keeping the wild animals as pets is wrong as they belong in the wild.

The stay-at-home mum admits getting "strange looks" from dog-walkers when she walks Jasper near an affluent rural village in Hertfordshire, which was popular with fox-hunters.
