Found stumbling around helplessly with its head stuck in a tin can, this fox cub could do little but call out in desperate shrieks for help. Luckily, the cub happened to be in the yard of a kind man, who gently pulled the can off of the distraught fox’s head.

The cub quickly showed its appreciation, nuzzling up to the man and even licking his toes.

According to the RSPCA, fox cubs should only be approached when in immediate danger (certainly this qualifies), and then are best left outdoors (even if orphaned), given supplemental dog food if needed.
