A rescue organization in England recently got a call about a tiny fox who’d gotten himself stuck inside a drain pipe, and couldn’t make his way out. Rescuers with the East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) had no idea where the cub was located inside the drain, and they tried using rods and cameras to locate him, hoping that maybe the rods would encourage him to find his way to the entrance of the pipe. As the rescuers worked, they were shocked to discover that the mother fox had appeared nearby, and was watching them.
It took a few tries, but finally, they managed to lift the little fox cub out of the drain and up to safety.
WRAS left the cub in a pet carrier near where he was rescued in hopes that his mom would come back again … and she did. After making sure that no one else was around, the mom helped her baby out of the carrier so that she could finally lead him home again. Instead of abandoning him, somehow the mom seemed to know that the rescuers would save her cub, and she waited as long as she had to in order to be reunited with him again.
