Yesterday the Brewster Police Department received a call from concern citizens. While out for a walk the couple passed an unoccupied summer cottage and heard what sounded like an animal in distress coming from the bulkhead. They opened the bulkhead and saw a baby fox. Not knowing how to handle wildlife they called for help.
Upon arrival I went into the basement and was able to capture the fox kit and place him in a cat carrier. Once in the carrier he started to “yap” for his mother. I put the carrier behind the house and watched from a distance to see if there was any sign of the mother. When she did not appear I checked the area but was unable to locate the den. The kit was too young to be on its own so I transported him to the Cape Wildlife Center in nearby Barnstable.
