Sometimes we can all use a helping hand, and no one knows this better Jennifer Adleman, who was able to lend a helping hand to a baby fox that was in quite a spot of trouble.
She was overlooking her backyard when she noticed something moving. Getting a better look, she quickly realized that it was a baby fox who had its head stuck inside a peanut butter jar!
This was not good – it was only a matter of time before the baby fox would suffocate inside the jar. So, Adleman decided to go help the fox.
She went outside, thinking that it was going to be a quick rescue. But as she approached the little fox, the animal ran off as he was quite scared.
Adleman didn’t want to leave him, but she also needed help. She couldn’t do the rescue alone. And that is when she got in touch with the Animal Humane Society. Unfortunately, neither Adleman or the AHS were able to locate the baby fox after he ran away. There was no sign of him.
Later on, Adleman then saw his mom coming around, calling out for the baby fox. But still, he wasn’t anywhere to be found. That is when Adleman got an idea.
She borrowed a trap and some food, hoping that it might work to capture the fox but instead, all she trapped were two chubby raccoons. Eventually, she got out a net and waited.
Her patience paid off, and soon she was able to catch the little fox. And once she had him in the net she was able to get him out from being stuck in the jar.
Afterward, she released him so he could join his mom. Adleman said to The Dodo, “I still think this is one of my greatest achievements.”
