April 10 (UPI) -- An animal control officer in Delaware was summoned to the back yard of a home to rescue a baby fox found entangled in a soccer net.

Vickers arrived to find the fox's neck and back leg were wrapped in the net from a soccer goal.

The officer cut the fox free from the net and transported it to a wildlife rehabilitation facility.

Officials said the fox will be returned to the wild when it is old enough to survive on its own.
