i know i was talking about a pet but my point was that we reported it daily for about 2 weeks and it was being abused and couldnt escape....they just didnt care.
My brother in law worked for a place that taught ''unruly'' kids to garden etc and he often had to help foxes on their way. If you know of anywhere that does something similar one of them might be able to help?

not only is poor Foxy suffering but he's putting other wildlife and domestic pets at risk too - contact your local newspaper - you may well find they are more interested than the RSPCA and maybe you could try ringing a farmer and see if he'll put it out of it's misery - farmers hate foxes anyway, he might actually enjoy doing it in a sick sort of way!!

Don't you just love the speed with which the organisations you've contacted have responded to the fox and it's dilemma?
