Luckily, a group of kind construction workers discovered the mud-covered animal. They could've left him to die. They could've made fun of him for looking more like a rabbit or a dog than a fox. But, instead, they did the right thing.
The concerned workers drove about 20 miles to bring the fox to the South Essex Wildlife Hospital (SEWH), a rescue and rehabilitation center for wild animals of all kinds.
"We rescue lots of foxes, always from human-made hazards," Sue Schwar, SEWH founder, told The Dodo.
