This Baby Fox Was Stuck In A Drain Pipe. When They Were Rescuing Him, Keep Your Eyes On His Mom!Ashley Maisano
An East Sussex, U.K., resident looked into a drain cover that was out of place and noticed a crying baby fox who was stuck at the bottom of the drain pipe. He called The Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service to come and save the cub.
They believe the baby fox had fallen in down the road, where a drain cover had been left open. The family left the cover off and thought the mom might be able to retrieve the cub, but by the next morning, it was still down there.
The cub’s mother turned up while they were trying to get to the cub. It was like she knew they were trying to help, and she just stood by and watched. After 90 minutes of trying to lure out the cub, they realized he could not be reached. It was a waiting game from here on out.
A few hours later, they were finally able to reach the cub’s tail and lift him out. He was soaking wet and dirty. They dried him off and placed him in a crate near the mother. Moments later, the mom grabbed her baby and ran off.
If these rescuers didn’t save the fox cub, he certainly would have wound up dying in that drain pipe. Thank God he got a happy ending! Watch the rescue below:
