Have you heard the story about the intrepid young fox that made The Shard London his home when it was being constructed?
This now infamous young cub spent two weeks roaming free at the top of The Shard. Keeping out of sight, he survived on scraps of food left by builders as they completed the building works.
Using the central stairway, this smart little fluff ball looked out over London until he was caught by Southwark Council pest control officers and after spending a few nights to recuperate at the Riverside Animal Centre in Wallington, he was released back into the London Bridge area to rejoin his family.
Nicknamed Romeo, his story went global becoming one of the world’s most famous foxes since Basil Brush as well as being the first ever occupant of The Shard!
You can now bring Romeo home for just GBP10 from The View at the Shard’s gift shop and Magellan has adopted two such young cubs, taking them with us on our travels around the world – to broaden their horizons! On the Magellan Facebook, he can be found under Romeo’s Travels.
