Vegan YouTuber Sonia Sae Angers Animal Lovers By Mistreating Pet Fox, Forcing Him to Live on a Vegan Diet

by Nayab

Sonia Sae is a vegan activist and YouTuber based in Barcelona, Spain. She has recently angered animal lovers around the world by mistreating her pet fox, forcing him to live on a vegan diet.

On her YouTube channel, Sonia talks about a meat-free lifestyle, campaigns against the meat industry and also discusses animal rights issues. She feels passionately about this last one, since she herself has an exotic furry best friend.

Jumanji is a tiny Fennec fox, a breed of exotic fox that weighs about as much as a house cat. He’s supposed to be a furry little thing with big floppy ears and a lot of energy. However, Jumanji is anything but healthy.

The little fox is half blind, suffering from malnutrition and is missing a lot of his hair. Sonia Sae’s fans are becoming increasingly worried about his lifestyle and diet. It seems the vegan YouTuber not only flouts meat and dairy herself, but is also making her pet fox live a vegan life.

The vegan fox might have been a good idea on paper but, according to the latest police investigation, it’s not working out in real life. Jumanji was shown to be suffering from spontaneous convulsions and is so thin his ribs are poking out.

Sonia Sae adopted the now starved animal from a breeder back in 2014. However, even this claim is disputed as some fans claim that she bought him from an exotic pet dealer. Apparently, she made up the story to boost her YouTube and Instagram ratings.

Her Instagram ratings are through the roof anyway, and not for good reason. A lot of people, especially pet enthusiasts, have taken issue with the fact that Jumanji is fed only cat food. Many point out that this is ridiculous for the simple reason that he is not a cat. Had he been in the wild, the fox would have eaten mealworms, bugs, mice and other carnivorous foods.

Since he cannot get these foods, he suffers from the above mentioned problems as well as fatigue, lethargy and sore, sensitive skin. He also looks nothing like healthy Fennec foxes look in the wild.

An enraged Facebook user, Alice Natanya Moore, has started a whole campaign and is trying to enforce action to be taken. The post has already been shared 25,000 times.

Other viewers also agree with Alice’s point of view. (Source: Facebook)

They [fennel foxes] are NOT omnivores. If you feed a fennec fox an omnivore diet they will get sick, it is not enough for them. In the wild, 90% of their food consists of meat and insects,” she wrote.

She also wrote that Jumanji’s partial blindness and hair loss are due to severe vitamin deficiency. The fox has a serious taurine deficiency since cat food does not contain this vitamin.

Alice also discussed his hair loss, writing, “He is experiencing hair loss(which she claims is an allergy)…he sheds his winter and summer coats…fennec foxes are a desert dwelling animal and do not have seasonal coats that they “shed”…meanwhile hair loss is a very common symptom of malnutrition.”

Local authorities do not have the necessary rights needed to take Jumanji away from his owner. However, activists everywhere have cropped up and are asking animal rights societies to step in. it’s always tragic to see an animal suffering at the hands of a human, no matter what the issue.

YouTuber Sonia Sae has not yet responded to queries.

    as a human being you have a CHOICE to deny your biology, animals should not have to comply with your CHOICE you should respect how they are built and educate yourself before taking on a helpless animal you stupid cunt, your veganism is because you don\’t want to support animal cruelty? look at wtf you are doing, why do you have a wild animal as a pet?

    Another complete idiot, willing to kill off an animal because they are entirely convinced that eating meat is so bad in the world. You can show her some science, but the only science she will figure out is when the fox is dead from the diet she forced it to live on, which is the most ignorant part of the animal rights bull that people spout. It\’s a real pity that such a pretty little animal like this fox has to suffer because she is stubbornly being stupid and not listening to reason.

    Stupid woman. Doesn\’t she realise how cruel she is being to that poor fox. Personally if I was people who follow this idiot I would definitely boycott her blogs etc. If she wants to be a vegan good for her but to harm an animal that she spruikes to protect is bloody horrific and she should have the animal and any other animals she has taken from her owing to cruelty and neglect

    It seems that there are more pictures of HER, than that poor little animal. She is starving for attention, while the baby is literally starving. She is pathetic.

    This is what happens when people decide that \”opinions\” and \”beliefs\” outweigh scientific evidence. Don\’t like the facts – ignore them in favour of personal opinion. We had a woman who killed her cats by forcing them to eat a vegetarian diet. In the UK she was banned from keeping animals for life as she refused to relinquish her vegetarian stance. Such a pity there does not seem to be the same sort of law in Spain.

    If you can\’t stand to eat meat and you refuse to give your pet a proper meat diet, then get a rabbit. BTW cats CANNOT BE FED A VEGEN DIET – they need high protein and MEAT – they cannot live without it and w/o being sick. If a person chooses to not eat meat, that is your choice, but do NOT force your pets to do the same. She should be arrested for animal abuse/cruelty immediately.

    The fox may have not enough space to run around or so but she rescued it from a breeder.
    What is wrong with you all ?
    I don\’t know if she was at a vet to controll its heahltiness, but you guys don\’t know too if the fox is really sick ! And the girl is such a good girl ! She doesn\’t dare to eat dead flesh from abused animals, or in other words, from our meat industry. She fights against it, for the future, for the enviroment and even for you all !!
