A resident in Britain heard a knocking outside their home discovered a fox with a plastic tub stuck on its head.
The resident alerted animal rescuers, RSPCA organisation on Thursday morning that a fox had its head stuck inside a white plastic tub that appeared to have contained supplements of protein powder.
The incident occurred near Doncaster, in Mexborough.
RSPCA Inspector Sandra Dransfield said, “We were called shortly after 6am this morning to the distressed fox who had a white plastic tub stuck on her head. The callers could hear something knocking outside their house and opened the door to see the fox thrashing around with the tub on her head.”
Dransfield highlighted that that the fox could have died if the tub had remained.
“We used bolt cutters, scissors and a knife to very carefully cut the opening of the container and prise it off the fox’s head. Thankfully, the fox wasn’t at all injured and was otherwise in really good condition so we released her there and then so she could head back to her den,” Dransfield added.
