Hangtastic Mr Fox gets caught

The poor fox had to be rescued

He was rescued by the Riverside Animal Centre in Beddington

A mischievous fox got himself into a spot of bother when he went exploring on a shed roof.

The large fox got his paw caught on a shed roof in Cheam on Friday, December 27, and ended up getting stuck upside down.

The poor fox’s rear foot was torn in half while the bones were left protruding.

Luckily the Riverside Animal Centre in Beddington rescued him and have been nursing him back to health ever since.

The fox had to have an operation but is said to be healing well and will be looked after for at least another three to four weeks.

Perhaps he was out looking for a girlfriend in the midst of fox-mating season.

This is the second fox caught upside down in the last year.

Great rescue Beddington Wildlife Centre. Shamefully we cannot count on LFB rescuers for such rescues these days. Poor fox must have been in agony with such a severely injured foot. Brilliant that clever vets could and did repair the damage. Is there something intrinsically dangerous about the design of certain garden sheds?.Hope Foxy gets well soon.

Well done Beddington rescuers. It's shameful LFB rescue ignores animals in peril now. Is there some risk to animals in the design of these new plastic sheds that could be put right? Get well soon Mr. Handsome Foxy.

Well done Riverside Animal Centre, Beddington. We, in this borough, do care and look out for our injured animals/pets very well, wish the same could be said about the human aspect, St Helliers shutdown, etc.......
