A Sad Call Midnight Call Out
A very sad situation this evening - a fox hit by a car in Abbeywood.
All the more heart breaking was the adult fox who kept hovering around the fallen fox and simply would not leave, putting him or her in danger of also being hit by passing cars. Very possibly the injured foxes' mate or part of a family group.
Sadly the foxes' injuries were severe and the only option was euthanasia at the nearest out of hours vet. Thank you to Clare for alerting us, my mum and to Abbie for their help and to Abbie for transporting to the vet.
Thanks also to Debbie who offered to drive the fox to a wildlife-friendly vet further afield if the prognosis had been more positive - sadly it wasn't.
