A fox is still smiling and well on the road to recovery after being found injured and burnt at a brick works in Bexhill, East Sussex. Staff at the IBstock Brickworks in Bexhill called out East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) after discovering the fox inside one of their chemical storage rooms.
WRAS carer Monica Russell has her hands full at the moment trying to hand rear 5 fox cubs. The latest one was rescued by WRAS rescuers Trevor Weeks and Kathy Martyn late last night after a kitten was found bemused sniffing round it on a drive way in Bexhill. The very small cub was less than 2 hours old and still had its umbilicus attached and some placenta too. The very small cub was placed on a heat pad an taken to WRAS carer Monica Russell where it is now being hand reared. This little cub will join 'Crinkle', 'Rocky', 'Cookie' and 'Fudge' who are a little older and came from Hampden Park and Langney.
