East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) has been called out to three fox cubs within the last 12 hours.
The first was at 10:30pm (15th May 2018) in London Road Hailsham after being hit by a car. A WRAS volunteers found the cub and kept it safe till a WRAS Veterinary Ambulance arrived. The cub was very poorly and barely alive. The cub was monitored closely on the way back to WRAS’s Casualty Centre and stopped breathing, so the ambulance had to pull over and emergency first aid given to get the cub breathing again. Once at WRAS’s Casualty Care Centre vets were contacted and the cub gently warmed up as well as being medicated and give vital fluids. He was placed in WRAS Intensive Care Unit and monitored closely. Over the next hour the cub regained consciousness and stabilised so was moved to a larger cage and was encouraged to lap cat food mixed with rehydration fluid. WRAS’s Care Team are working hard to pull him through.
