"It was very horrifying to see," Barb Lierman, a Cudahy resident, told Fox 6 Now. "I was crying." That's when the calls started to come in. Various neighbors quickly got in touch with the Wisconsin Humane Society's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, reporting the fox's alarming predicament.
"This fox has friends," the rehabilitation center wrote on Facebook. "Human friends. Lots of them ... They borrowed a live trap from us and set it in their yard, determined to catch him and bring him to us for help."
Finally, last Friday morning, the live trap arrived at the rehabilitation center, the young fox tucked neatly inside of it.
