A fox had to be rescued later get your head stuck on a wheel outside a storage yard in New Malden, London.
Sam Matthews, an RSPCA rescue officer, was sent to the scene to help the animal after it was spotted by a member of the public.
“The poor fox had almost given up and resigned himself to his fate,” Matthews said. “They had put the tire there the night before, but he was pretty exhausted.
“I think the young fox was just being curious; possibly he was looking for some food hidden underneath.”
Both the fox and the wheel had to be taken to a wildlife center, where the animal was released and received medical care.
“I managed to get the fox and the wheel into my van,” Matthews added. “At no time did the fox resist.
“When I arrived at Wildlife Aid, they were ready and waiting. They managed to manipulate his ear to get it out of the hole. She didn’t have any injuries, just her face was swollen.”
The fox was returned to the wild three days after the rescue.
