In December, Dan Martin, an English wildlife rescue worker, got a call from a worried woman reporting on an injured fox in the area. He immediately stepped out to see what had happened to him and found the fox limping, reports The Dodo.
Martin approached the fox slowly, and for about 20 minutes he had to keep his distance so as not to scare the poor creature. Finally, he allowed Martin to come close, wrap him in a soft towel, and transport him to his car.
The only available appointment at the veterinary clinic was for the next morning, so Martin decided to take the fox, whom he named Basil, home for the night. There, he treated the injured animal to a soft bed and lots of treats.
After his surgery, which went very well, Basil was taken in by theNational Fox Welfare Societywho are currently taking great care of him and helping him recover.He is adjusting very well to his life with three legs and keeps smiling for photos while the team decides what will be best for his future.
