Complicated Fox Rescue

Last Tuesday, the East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service in England was called to free a fox that had gotten its head stuck under a fence in Eastbourne. When they arrived, the fox pulled his head in under the fence. That was weird. Was the fox not really stuck all that time? Looking around, the crew realized that the fox was in a tiny space where two fences met near a wall, and his leg was stuck under the other fence! After trying several unsuccessful ideas, the rescue crew ended up cutting a bit of wood from the bottom of the second fence, just enough to free the stuck leg. But now the unstuck fox was confined in the tiny area, which was too small for a person to approach the wild and possibly injured animal safely. They eventually managed to extract the fox, and you can read the entire story at the East Sussex Wildlife Rescue website. (via Arbroath)
