The Wareham Department of Natural Resources posted about a rescue on Wednesday, May 20 on Facebook. It looks like a baby fox found himself in a tight spot.

“Wednesday morning started off with a rescue of a young fox (kit) that got its head stuck in a storm drain grate. The Good Samaritans that found the fox with its head sticking out of the storm drain immediately alerted the Wareham Police Department and Natural Resource officers were dispatched to the scene.

"With help from a Good Samaritan, Dawn soap and some J.M. Smucker Company - Cincinnati Crisco Plant vegetable oil, WDNR officers were able to free the kit as its concerned mother stood by. Before releasing the kit, it was given a quick bath to wash off the soaps and checked for injuries. We’re happy to say no injuries were sustained and a very clean fox was released back to the wild!”

First of all, this kit is so darn cute I can’t stand it. Looking at these photos, you can’t help but feel sorry for the little thing. And that poor mom must have felt so helpless being unable to save her kit. I’m so glad that WDNR came to the rescue when they did.

Also, can we please talk about how J.M. Smucker Company - Cincinnati Crisco Plant actually responded to the post since they were tagged as one of the ingredients used in the rescue?
