A fox has been released into the wild after a woman found it sleeping in the wardrobe of her second-floor flat.
The RSPCA was called into the home after being called by its owner Klodi Dabkiewicz who luckily was in England prior to Christmas as she normally spends winter on the Costa del Sol. Klodi had returned to her other home in Dagenham London for Christmas visits and shopping before returning to Spain.
Inspector Mitchell Smith said: “It was quite difficult to see him because he’d curled up in the back corner of a wardrobe behind some bags.
“I suspect he came into the block to escape the rain as it had been pouring outside, and somehow ended up on the second floor and in this flat!”
Ms Dabkiewicz said: “Inspector Smith was fantastic and I’m incredibly grateful to the RSPCA for coming to help.
“I’m a vegan and I absolutely love all animals so I was really pleased that this fox was OK and could be released.”
