Be careful when you are near these berries as the bushes are deadly. If you touch them, it will inflict damage to half a heart every time.
When you are able to locate berries and foxes within close proximity, build a fence around for later. Once you manage to get a few of these berries, locate a nearby pair of foxes. Approach the foxes slowly, otherwise, you will scare them. Feed them the berries and they should breed.
