A tiny fox cub with his head trapped in a glass jar was found by a passer-by in a Peterborough park.

The cub, believed to be three-weeks-old, was found on Sunday, March 29.

The passer-by removed the jar from his head, wrapped the young fox in his jumper and took him home where he called the RSPCA.

No injuries were sustained, but without a mother the cub needs regular feeds until he is big enough to eat for himself and be released back to the wild.

The fox is now being cared for at the RSPCA East Winch Wildlife Centre near King’s Lynn.

The passer-by is believed to be a young boy.

The RSPCA did not know which Peterborough park the cub was found in.

Speaking about all the animals under her care, Sue Levings, wildlife administrator for East Winch, said: “They are all too little and young to survive without their mothers in the wild, but we hope that with a little time we can help with that.

“They are all getting regular feeds and the support they need to grow strong enough to survive back out in the wild on their own.”
