Animal Team Frees Seven-Week-Old Cub Trapped in Plastic Bottle, Offering a Heartwarming Moment of Freedom and Hope

This is the heartwarming moment a baby fox was cut free by rescuers after its head became stuck in a plastic bottle.

The young fox, who was caught by rescuers after getting its head stuck inside a plastic bottle in Eastbourne

Animal rescuers were forced to try and remove the plastic bottle from the fox’s head as it was unable to eat or drink

The cub was discovered when rescuers spotted a young fox after seeing movement in the bushes

Senior rescuer Chris Riddington, who was shown the clip, said: ‘It looked as though the cub has its head in a jar, but it was difficult to tell exactly what it was.

‘He was running around between the bushes, and was slightly disorientated.’

Two ambulances were also sent to the area to search for the young fox and as daylight appeared the rescuers continued to search the bushes in Woodgate Road.

Eventually, the cub was discovered when rescuers spotted a young fox after seeing movement in the bushes.

Kathryn Martyn, partner of the WRAS founder, Trevor Weeks, said: ‘We didn’t want to give up, as we were concerned the cub might develop breathing problems and was probably already becoming hungry and dehydrated.

Rescuers had to use scissors to carefully remove the jar from the fox’s head, after there were fears it would have trouble breathing

The cub was checked over by WRAS vet Mike Symons at WRAS’s Casualty Centre and was then bedded for the night to recuperate

A hole was cut at the end to help with breathing and then bandage scissors were used to cut the tub.

The young fox cub is currently being cared for at East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Animal Service Casualty Care Centre
