When wild animals get stuck in wire fences or entangled in rope, they often will do everything in their power to try to free themselves, even if it means injuring themselves in the process.
And when one wild fox got stuck in a loose piece of barbed wire, it knew it would starve if it couldn’t untangle itself. Luckily, however, a group of mountain bikers were nearby and heard the animal crying out in pain as it fought to free itself from the painful wire.
They followed the noise until they stumbled upon a panicked wild fox that was entangled in a barbed wire fence that bordered a bike path, but as the group approached, the cagey fox got aggressive and started snapping at them when they put their hands near the fence.
The bikers tried to show the scared animal they wouldn’t harm it, but when that didn’t work, they found a stick for the fox to bite while a brave biker quickly cut the animal free with a pair of wire cutters.
Watch the entire video below to see the amazing moment these bikers are able to free a fox who was stuck in barbed wire.
