A fox cub that was rescued by a Cornish wildlife centre after becoming separated from its mother and suffering from exhaustion has befriended a lurcher.

Copper was taken to Feadon Farm Wildlife Centre in Portreath to receive treatment, but instead made friends with the manager's one-year-old pet dog, Jack.
