Stoned Fox (Russian: Упоротый лис) is an anthropomorphic taxidermied fox that has become an Internet sensation in Russia.[1][2][3][4]

The fox died of natural causes. It was stuffed in 2012 by Welsh artist Adele Morse (originally from Blackwood, Caerphilly, now based in Dalston, East London), who at the time was taking a Masters course at the Royal Academy of London and made it as part of a school project. The results were not good. She put the finished work on eBay where it surprisingly gained much attention.[5][2][6]

At the end of 2012, the fox quickly became an Internet meme in Russia. It has since been edited into famous paintings, photographs, videos, and other visual media.[1]
