Gerel Shakeeva, About Foxes
Gerel says that she witnessed how people killed a fox. The fox had a lot of fleas in its fur. In order not to damage the skin, one should know how to shoot a fox. Traditionally, Kalmyks do not wear fox skin. She heard from others that in Kalmykia there is a clan whose totemic animal is the fox. Similarly, in Kalmykia there is a clan called Chonos, which literally means ‘wolves’.
