Near London’s Canary Wharf, it was just another regular day for the builders who were tasked with routine ground work. Having left a couple of holes open, they began to hear what sounded like cries of a young animal of some sort. Once they peeked into one of the deep and muddy holes, they indeed found a helpless small animal. Little did they know it was a horribly petrified 4-month-old fox cub!
With absolutely no chance at escape, the fox was totally trapped. Thick layers of dried mud covered the little guy from head to toe. The builders rescued him. His saviors over at South Essex Wildlife Hospital went to work, nursing him back to health, while feeding and bathing him. ‘Muddsey’ was his new name. Under all that sludge you could hardly tell what Muddsey was. But now after a good cleaning, his cute face is revealed.
The staff said, “None of us knew how long he had been down that hole — it could have been all weekend.”
Take a look at Muddsey’s photos below. It’s amazing this poor fella was rescued and we are all so glad the world gets to share this wonderful story!

The young cub was completely caked in sludge and barely recognizable as a living creature. He needed immediate care, as it was unclear how long he’d been trapped down in the hole.
Hospital workers attended to the cub. They washed the dirt and mud off his coat, and it didn’t take long to see how adorable he was under all that soot!
The hospital named him ‘Muddsey,’ which is quite fitting if you ask me. This brave little fox is now happy, healthy and safe at last.
