An injured fox cub had been found at St. Austell and taken to Churchend Vets the previous day. The cub had been grabbed by a dog and bitten across the lower back, the puncture wounds had become infected and the area needed clipping and be thoroughly cleaned. The cub had been kept overnight as very subdued but as the antibiotic and pain relief drugs started to do their work, the fox was now much brighter and alert. The young male was approx 14weeks old, weighed 1.6kg and needed the bite wounds cleaned daily to prevent any build up of infection. Dusty didn't appreciate our efforts but the struggles were worth it as the wounds healed quickly allowing him to transfer to Secret World Wildlife Rescue on May 10th. With the company of other foxes, Dusty would be released later in the year when more mature.
