Real life[edit]

In real life Ken owns a small software company he founded as well as a DIY solar kit company. His hobbies include history, antiques, home repair, woodworking and disc golf.

Ken created the FURsvp (formerly Surple.com) online event manager, but has since[when?] passed it on to SkippyFox.

Convention involvement[edit]

LupineFox hosted the New Years Furry Ball in 2007 as a follow up to smaller New Years' parties in previous years, leading it in two subsequent years as it grew from a two-suite party to a more comprehensive event. He was a Furfright hospitality staff member from 2009-2011, and usually volunteers unofficially at the Anthrocon art show.

Controversy[edit]

Main article: 2016/2017 child abuse arrests.

After a joint investigation by Bucks County Detectives and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, LupineFox was charged with raping an 8-year-old boy inside his home in 2009.[2]

On Friday January 27, 2017, Fenske was arraigned before District Judge Gary Gambardella on one count of child rape, two counts of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and two counts of unlawful contact with a minor.[2]

The minor, now a teen, told investigators that Fenske raped him several times in 2009 during a series of furry parties at Fenske's home. He also told investigators he was the only child present at these parties, and would go dressed as Kellogg's cereal mascot Tony the Tiger. The boy allegedly told investigators that during these parties he would play the video game "Rock Band" for a period of time until Fenske asked him to come upstairs where, in a guest bedroom, the abuse occurred.

Judge Gambardella set bail at $75,000. A preliminary hearing is set for Febuary 13.

On Sunday January 29, Fenske made a posting on his Fur Affinity page:[3][4]

   
LupineFox
I have been accused of something horrible but my lawyer says I can't talk about it. You will hear about it. At this point I can only say that I did not do what I am accused of and will defend myself to the best of my abilities. If you are wondering if you believe me and you know me then you should have your answer.

Shortly thereafter, Fenske disabled access to his Fur Affinity account and deleted his Twitter account. Around February 5, the Fur Affinity account was reopened with the administrators reminding people of the principle of "innocent until proven guilty", and warning people not to post malicious shouts on the page.
