SAN ANTONIO – Employees at San Antonio College made an interesting discovery last week when they found a sly fox inside an office resting on top of cabinets.
The Animal Care Services said officers were dispatched to the Moody Learning Center at the college, located just north of downtown, to rescue the fox.
The animal had somehow made its way into the office by entering through the ceiling, ACS said in a Facebook post on Monday.
When an officer tried to use an extension pole to rescue the animal, he realized the fox’s leg was stuck between the cubicle siding and the wall. ACS and campus police were able to move the cubicle to free the fox.
It was taken to the Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Inc. where it was checked out for injuries, but was ultimately released at Brackenridge Park.
“We are so happy this guy is back out where he belongs,” ACS said. “With the weather getting cooler, we may see more urban wildlife like Mr. Fox. We ask to please leave wildlife alone and always maintain a safe distance around them.”
ACS said people who find wildlife in distress can call 311 or submit a request online.
