Firefighters rescue fox cub with head stuck in Sutton wall

05 June 2015

Firefighters were called to rescue a baby fox that had it’s head stuck in a wall on Holland Road in Sutton, last week.

Firefighter John Griffin who was at the scene, said: “An extension was being built at the back of the property and a family of foxes had got in under the floor. There was a hole in one of the breeze blocks and the cub had got its head stuck.

“We covered the fox over with a towel and chiselled the wall around it and as soon as it was free it ran straight back under the floor boards.”

The Brigade was called at 2207 on Friday 29 May and the incident was over at 2240.
