The world’s wildlife has struggled for years avoiding dangerous obstacles that humans have created. One of the big reasons we shouldn’t litter is because of what leftover plastic could do to small animals.
So when this baby fox managed to get itself caught up and tangled in a football net it was a wake up call to Wildlife Aid’s viewers that even things we don’t commonly think of can pose a danger to animals.
Luckily for this adorable young fox the team at Wildlife Aid were alerted to its plight and took the time to free the scared baby. The cub’s leg was terribly tangled up in the ropes and was likely injured as a result, so a man carefully cut the ropes to release it with minimal extra damage.
It’s amazing how many hazards wildlife comes across which we just don’t consider to be hazards.
The Wildlife Aid worker goes on to say how 70% of young foxes don’t even make it to their first birthday. This is likely due to hazards similar to the one in this video, cars and hunting.
