The Facilities Management Team at our new Cheshire and Merseyside headquarters, Estuary Point have helped to rescue a wild fox who had taken up residence in the grounds.
‘Pointy’ (get it? 🙂) was approaching colleagues – which is out of character for foxes as they are normally nocturnal – and it became apparent that the animal was very poorly.
Facilities Assistant, Andy contacted the RSPCA and arranged a site visit with an RSPCA Welfare Officer who confirmed Pointy needed help. The following day Andy received a call from an expert who runs a 24 hour fox rescue charity called ‘The Fox Man’. (Basically a paramedic for foxes!)
They came to safely capture Pointy who is now at a rescue centre in Manchester!
‘The Fox Man’ Paul, said: “When Pointy arrived, he weighed 6.8kg, which is a decent weight; we started treatment for mange straight away and Pointy will be with us for less time than we originally thought. When Pointy is well enough, he’ll be released back in to the area that he was found.”
Pointy obviously came to the right place for help at the ambulance service! Well done to all involved.
