Earlier this week we bought you the story of mysterious blue fox spotted at a Woolwich Travelodge, well sadly it has been put to sleep by the RSCPA.

The fox was lured away from the hotel using Doritos by a member of the public .

But now the animal has been found and had to be put to sleep because of its injuries.

Very sadly, the fox was so unwell, that a vet said the kindest thing to do was put him to sleep to prevent further suffering.
He was extremely thin with wounds all over his hock and legs, alopecia, mange and an ulcerated and sore tail."



RSPCA: dog appeared well cared for

RSPCA inspector Kate Ford said:

It is a bit of a strange one. On the one hand, Lola seems to have been cared for. She is in good condition, has a lovely temperament and seems used to people, and then there was the bag of treats left nearby – a nice little touch which makes you think she had been loved. It also almost feels like a nice garden was chosen on purpose for her to be abandoned in.

On the other hand, she was dumped, and apparently over a high wall, which was quite some drop. Thankfully initial stiffness in her rear legs seems ok now and a vet gave her a clean bill of health.

She is such a lovely dog with a really sweet nature. I hope there is a happy ending round the corner for her.
