While we all enjoy capturing videos of wild animals in their natural habitat, there are certain moments that we would prefer not to see, especially when a wild animal is in pain. A cute video of a wild animal is rare to see, but a video of an animal who is in trouble is even more rare.
When we stumble into fateful moments where a wild animal needs our help, it can be tempting to ditch the animal and hope that someone else will deal with that. Some might call the Humane Society, others might call Animal Control. However, there are special humans out there who are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to provide help to an animal in need and these folks deserve our most heartfelt appreciation.
The fox in this story was in a bad way and it is tough to say what would have happened to the animal had two selfless men not come along and provided the creature with the help it needed. This amazing tale takes place in East Sussex, where the fox had somehow gotten a plastic bottle wedged onto his head, with little to no chance for escape.
The poor animal was losing air and as a result, the fox was very disoriented by the time the men found it. Confused by the presence of the helpers, the fox stumbled away and headed off for the brush. The men did not give up on the fox, following the animal, tracking it down and calling Wildlife Control once they had corralled it.
Animal Service was also called and we’re glad that these men took the imitative to help. If not for them, who knows what would have happened? Thankfully, we have more than a few good people in this world who would take time out of their day to offer assistance to an animal who is in desperate need.
Be sure to take a look at this video, so that you can get a true depiction of what took place.
The bottle was eventually cut off of the animal’s head and the fox was very grateful to be freed. In the meantime, the fox will be in recovery until it is strong enough to head back out into the wild and be reunited with its family. If it were up to us, these men would receive a thunderous round of applause for their actions. Please share this story with your friends and loved ones.
