Foxes are the true personification of curiosity and cunning. But sometimes their long nose can lead their owner into a difficult situation.
Like, for example, a fox that took an interest in a wheel in one of South London’s gardens. And as a result, he got stuck in the same wheel. He couldn’t get out of the trap himself. Nor could the owners of the wheel help the beast in any way. They had to wait for specialists.
People tried to help the fox by greasing the wheel. But his head was too stuck.
Then employees of the RSPCA – the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – were called in for help. When RSPCA workers examined the fox, they realized its neck was already swollen trying to free itself. And he can’t get out of the wheel like that.
An RSPCA worker named Kirsty told Metro they had to hurry with the release of the wheel hostage. The poor guy was trying to break free and was so scared that I realized we had to act fast.
The beast received water and began to wait for firefighters, who were quick to wait. With the help of special equipment, they managed to cut the wheel and get the fox out of it.
Fortunately, the animal was not injured. Except for the swollen neck and shock. And soon he was released. According to Kirsty, it would not have been possible to free the fox without the help of the firefighters.
