Arctic Fox Rescued from Iceberg

This critter got himself into a predicament, didn't he? A crab boat crew saw a fox stranded on an iceberg about seven kilometers off the coast of Labrador. Alan Russell of St. Lewis talked to the CBC about the fox on an ice shelf.  

"We seen something on the ice. Wasn't sure what it was," Russell told CBC's Labrador Morning. "So we got up closer to it. It was a little fox, Arctic fox. And he wasn't very big. He was soaking wet, and the gulls was trying to pick at him."

The crew tried to pull him from the mushroom-shaped iceberg tip, but the skittish fox wouldn't let them close. So they used the boat to knock the ice pan down and fished the fox from the water with a net.

The crew put the fox in a bin with wood shavings, brought him to port, fed him for a couple of days, and then released him. See more pictures at CBC. -via TYWKIWDBI
