Most of the time, fox news from the United Kingdom is grisly, cruel, and shocking. Hunters horribly send their hounds after foxes to tear them to shreds, trappers bludgeon and snare foxes for their fur, and even on Boxing Day, a prominent lawyer clubbed a fox to death. But in Glasgow, Scotland, there was an amazing successful rescue of a baby fox that will restore your faith in humans and remind us all that people can indeed be compassionate to them.
On April 17th, citizens noticed a female cub in a hole submerged in water and just at the right time, police officers happened to be walking by. In a fascinating twist of fate, the name of one of the officers is PC Fox.
🦊👮 We were involved in a fox cub rescue with PC Fox!
PC Fox was passing a group of people who had rescued a cub from a hole filled with water.
He called us and she is now one of 24 cubs we are caring for.

The people who found the young fox rescued her from the hole and handed her to PC Fox who wrapped her in a towel to keep her warm and took her to the police station. She was later picked up by animal welfare officers from the Scottish RSPCA.
Senior animal rescue officer Jan Toraman said: “When we arrived, she was still cold and damp but if she hadn’t been rescued, she probably wouldn’t have made it. We immediately transferred her to our National Wildlife Rescue Centre where she is receiving the care she needs.”
The baby fox was fortunate to be found by caring people who knew they couldn’t just leave her there alone.
