A child has helped to save the life of a fox who was at risk of drowning after falling into an overflow gully in Birmingham. The deep gully was filling with water at the time. The child called the RSPCA, and an officer rushed to the scene to rescue it.
It happened on Javelin Avenue on Thursday 1 February. Animal collection officer Cara Gibbon went to help.
The fox was exhausted, but not injured, so Cara Gibbon released him. She has praised the boy who called her, saying that if he hadn't, the fox could have drowned.
