Ind. deputy's cherished pet is domesticated fox

Posted: Updated:

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -- A central Indiana sheriff's deputy who has a pet fox says the domesticated critter is more like a cat than a dog.

Twenty-three-year-old Wayne County sheriff's deputy Tyler Marsh says his more than 4-month-old pet arctic fox, Loki, doesn't bark or growl. That makes him welcome at the apartment complex where Marsh lives.

Marsh tells The Star Press that the nice thing about Loki is that he can be walked like a dog but has been trained to use a litter box like a cat.

Loki should weigh about 20 pounds when he's full-grown. He's become well known at the coffee shop that Marsh frequents.

Marsh says his dark gray fox is high-strung and eats expensive brand of dog food.
