Firefighters continue to respond to every kind of rescue situation around the world whether it be a human rescue or a an animal.

Recently a baby fox was rescued from the bottom of the tube near a construction site in Karlstad, Sweden last Wednesday.

Swedish firefighters pulled off an incredible feat when they hoisted a stranded fox out of a narrow pipe.

The firefighters rescued the baby fox from the plastic pipe by lowering one of their team members down the duct head first. The petite rescuer who was wearing a harness was then hauled back up the channel with the pup wrapped in a blanket in her arms.

The brave firefighter who squeezed into the cramped space was identified as Therese Jonasson. After the baby fox was rescued from the bottom of the tube it was reportedly released into a nearby forest to run free again.

While firefighters are often involved to save stranded animals, there have been few cases that have required for a rescuer to be thrust into such a tight enclosure as in this case. But whatever the situation, firefighters must be innovative and do whatever it takes to rescue the stranded animal.
