Fox cub gets head stuck in wheel

No votes yet

A 10-week-old fox cub is recovering after getting his head stuck in the hub of a discarded lorry wheel at a fuel depot in Grangemouth, Scotland, the BBC reports.

The wheel and its occupant were rushed to the Middlebank SSPCA rescue center, where the cub was extricated and will be kept until old enough to fend for himself.

How did he get there though?

Well, he probably hopped in through the big hole in the middle.

Presumably this is the fox equivalent of that old English custom of schoolboys getting their heads stuck in iron railings at the seaside?

ETA: Those foxes sure have a habit of sticking their heads where they shouldn't.
