Sick Fox Rescued By North West Ambulance Services Facilities Management Team

The Facilities Management Team at North West Ambulance Services’ new Cheshire and Merseyside headquarters in Estuary Point have helped to rescue a wild fox who had taken up residence in the grounds.

The fox, named ‘Pointy’, was approaching staff and it became apparent that the animal was very poorly.

Animals lovers will know that fox’s rarely venture out into the urban wilderness during the day, as they are nocturnal.

Facilities Assistant, Andy contacted the RSPCA and arranged a site visit with an RSPCA Welfare Officer who confirmed that ‘Pointy’ needed some urgent attention.

The following day Andy received a call from an expert who runs a 24-hour fox rescue charity called ‘The Fox Man’.

They safely captured ‘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 into the area that he was found.”

A spokesperson for North West Ambulance Service said:

‘Pointy obviously came to the right place for help at the ambulance service!

‘Well done to all involved’.

  • We had a very sick one visiting our gardens .Phoned RSPCA they told us someone would come if we could contain it!!! As there are mostly over 70s living here it was impossible .No other advice given so no faith with RSPCA .Ambulance teams brilliant complete confidence in them all we have dealt with .Pity the poor creatures as only cases that give good publicity seem to bother the RSPCA .
