Fox with head stuck in plastic tub (7)m









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.
