Trinity College Dublin has congratulated its "unofficial mascot" Sam the fox on the birth of her cubs.

Staff at the university took to leaving food out for the animal during the first lockdown last Spring.

So that's because scraps from cafes and restaurants around the city stopped due to lockdown.

Sam was spotted in recent months with another fox named Prince.

The pair have welcomed five cubs to their little family.

A group of foxes is called a skulk, (we had to look that one up too to be honest).

Sam, Prince and Cubs Have "Given Us Joy"

Collie Ennis, a zoologist at Trinity College, says the good news has lifted their spirits:

"The regular comings and goings of campus life have been put on pause."

"So there's no Trinity Ball, no regular lectures and no normal to-and-fro."

"The great thing has been watching Sam and Prince knocking around campus."

"It has really livened things up and given people a bit of joy."

Trinity has asked anyone who spots the cubs to give them plenty of space.
