Thanks to all the people who got the baby fox out! They are so kind and the mother loves her baby so much, beautiful in deed!
When a fox cub got stuck in a drain, heroic bystanders tried their best to free the trapped baby. They couldn’t quite get their arms far enough down the drain so they needed a plan. Locals heard the cub crying from down the drain pipe and knew they had to work fast to get him out.
The bystanders first noticed something was up when they spotted an adult fox. She was standing in the busy area near the hole without moving. There was lots of loud noises and people around. But she didn’t move, the fox looked anxious and didn’t seem to run away. The mother didn’t want to leave until she knew her baby was safe.
The locals used a drainage rod to try and push the cub out. They couldn’t quite reach with their arms so tried to push from a different pipe.

Rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) were called out early afternoon to a fox cub after it was seen at the bottom of a drain in a cul-de-sac in Cooden Beach Bexhill.
The cub had originally been seen the night before but disappeared, but was again spotted at lunch time on Tuesday 10th May. Trevor Weeks MBE founder of WRAS from Uckfield, Rescuer Manager Chris Riddington from Eastbourne and Senior Rescue Tony Neads from Polegate, attended on site to try and save the cub.
“At first we were unsure where the cub was as there were multiple pipes leading in different directions. We used a mobile phone to film inside the pipes, as well as drainage rods, hose pipe and insulation for pipes to try checking the pipes and potentially push the cub to the drain entrance 2.5ft underground. We were amazed that the vixen turned up whilst we were trying to find the cub and it was almost as if she knew we were trying to rescue her cub” said Chris.
