Fox kit rescued with dish soap - Catherine - 04-22-2022

A couple of fox kits were born in a garden shed in Kent. When the mother hadn't been seen in days the people checked on the kits. The little male had stuck his head into a metal wheel and was really stuck. The RSPCA was called in and armed with dish soap they were able to free the little fox. He was taken with his sister to the South Essex Wildlife Hospital where they will be cared for until they are ready to be released.

Good for the people that they kept watch on the little foxes. Without the mom and with his head stuck things could have ended badly. Now, very likely both foxes will do well and live out their lives as they should.

Dish soap does many things. It is used to clean up animals after an oil spill. Add freeing stuck foxes to the list.
