RonRon the Fox Dies Peacefully In His Sleep
Sad news, animal lovers of the internet — the adorable red fox from the hugely viral “Fox go FLOOF” video has passed away.
RonRon, who captivated YouTube viewers as he played excitedly with his human friend Eric in their backyard in Arkansas in 2013, died last week just after the channel dedicated to him passed 100,000 subscribers. The original viral video was viewed over 23 million times
“Our dearest RonRon passed away early this morning, peacefully, in his sleep, as he was curled up in a cute fox ball,” Eric posted in the description of a tribute video with video clips and photos of the fox’s life. “He was nearly 8 years old.”
Eric also posted a video of the moment he found his beloved pet fox the morning after he died, but be warned — it’s a tear jerker.
