They're known for their cunning, but this fox was left feeling less sly than usual after getting its head wedged inside the wheel off a parked car.
The animal was trapped for more than 45 minutes in Grays, Essex, after his mishap with a Volkswagen and had to wait patiently for the RSPCA to arrive.
When they were unable to set him free, the fire brigade was summoned.
Firefighters jacked up the car, removed the wheel and then set the animal free. He is now recuperating in South Essex Wildlife Hospital.
