The vixen appears to have fallen into a sewer/drainage pipe in Woodston. Coincidentally, local drainage company Dalro, based in Welbeck Way in Woodston, happened to be working on that bit of pipe on Wednesday afternoon, May 3, and she managed to find her way to them.

The Dalrod team kept her warm while they called an RSPCA inspector to come and take further care of her.

An RSPCA spokesman said: “Having had a bit of a wash because she’d been in some interesting smelling fluids, she’s currently resting after a feed, and will be moved on to the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre for her next few weeks care. Well done Dalrod.”
