“At first we were unsure where the cub was as there were multiple pipes leading in different directions,” said one of the rescuers Chris Riddington. “We used a mobile phone to film inside the pipes…We were amazed that the vixen turned up whilst we were trying to find the cub and it was almost as if she knew we were trying to rescue her cub.”
It took a few hours to get the fox cub out of the drain pipe, but they managed to do it successfully. The little cub was OK health wise. He was only soaking wet and dirty, so he had to be bathed and cleaned back at the rescue.
“As if the rescue hadn’t been amazing already, within minutes of us returning mum appeared and walked straight over to a pet carrier which we had placed the cub in,” Chris added. “With some help from mum he managed to climb out and mum escorted him back home again. It was unbelievably emotional for all of us.”
