With wire mesh surrounding his shoulders and waist, the ferret was unable to move.
Luckily, a woman spotted the ferret and called the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), who were quick to respond to the scene.
With sedatives and metal-clippers in hand, the rescue team calmed the ferret and firefighters removed the section of the fence surrounding his small body.
They then transported him to Abbey House Veterinary Hospital (AHVH) where veterinarian Laura Smith worked to get him free.
In addition to removing the fence from his body, AHVH also gave him a fitting name: Whoops.
