Police Rescue Fox Cub Trapped at Construction Site

Police in Princeton, New Jersey, have credited a local animal control officer with the rescue of an injured fox cub trapped at a construction site.

The little creature fell into an under-construction basement area, where it likely sustained its injury, and was unable to get out. Jim Ferry, an animal control officer with the local government, was dispatched to the scene and managed to capture the cub.

Police said the fox cub was found to have a broken leg and was sent for treatment to Mercer County Wildlife Center. Credit: Princeton Police Department, New Jersey via Storyful
