I realize that I am an absolutely horrible person for saying this, but my first reaction was, "Don't touch that! It's wild!" because, you know, I haven't been conditioned by animes to believe that foxes are innately cute and cuddly and don't mind being petted at all.
But at the same time... this is very beautiful. That first touch, when you're taking a risk and know that you might get bitten (or, in the fox's case, shot) but are willing to take the chance anyway... yes, I can understand that. The title is very apt.
