The fox cub rescued after being found running round with its head stuck in a plastic pot in Eastbourne on Wednesday 27th May, has been released back to the wild.
The fox cub was rescued by East Sussex WRAS and needed to have the plastic pot cut from its head after a 2 hour search and rescue mission by volunteer rescuers.
After a few days of care and treatment the fox cub has been returned to its home to be reunited with its family.
Location residents have been keeping an eye on the rest of the family to ensure they are still present so the cub could be returned back to the wild.
“This is one of the key reason for doing wildlife rescue work, to see a recovered animal return back to where it belongs. Brilliant to see and so worth all our hard work” said Trevor Weeks MBE.
WRAS is urging people to ensure they pick up their litter, take their litter home rather than leaving it for wildlife to become caught or entangled in.

LYN FUNNELL CV (well, sort of!)
Lyn had very successful careers as an Air Hostess, Sales Rep, (she was one of only a couple of women. She beat all the men regularly, becoming the Top Rep in the UK, and 2nd in the world.) And then Catering took over. She did everything from the washing-up, to Silver Service Waitress, and Chef.
A few times, she had to cook the meal, dash round the other side and Silver Serve it!
In between all this, she wrote as often as she could, building up a reputation as a published short story writer, (Horror and a twist in the tale,) and a Poet.
She has appeared as a Performing Poet, and a Demo Chef.
Then she discovered the world of the Food & Travel Writer. And that’s what she has continued doing to this day.
Her main hobbies are Cookery and entering Competitions. She has won many prizes, including holidays and a moped.
She enjoys entering Competitions, submitting her original recipes. She was first in many Competitions, including the Good Housekeeping Millenium Menu, Fruits of France, Bernard Matthews Turkey Recipe, and appeared on BBC’s The One Show Spag Bol contest. She was one of three Finalists, coming 2nd, which makes her Britain’s Spag Bol Queen!
Now she runs B-C-ing-U! and loves it!
After several years of being messed around by Editors, and having loads of contacts, Lyn formed her own online Magazine, vowing to treat her writers fairly, and to do everything possible to further their careers, publicise their books, etc.
She now has a band of excellent regular writers, and the Magazine’s going from strength to strength!
