The Belstone Fox

Free Spirit

1973

James Hill
Director

An orphaned fox cub is rescued and raised with the hounds.

The opening scene and one or two others are astonishingly grim and guaranteed to turn your offspring into animal-rights activists.

Disney saccharined the thing as The Fox and the Hound

There's a one star Amazon review headed:
Don't watch this if you love wildlife

I disagree, do watch this if you love wildlife because you do need to realise that this unpleasantness goes on in the real world.
