They arrived to find the animal's head was stuck through the opening in the middle of a discarded car tire's rim.

The post said the fox "was likely chasing a small rodent" when it stuck its head through the opening and became stuck.

"With the help from the homeowners and a little baby oil, our wardens were able to safely free Mr. Fox," the post said "Although I'm sure he was 'tire'd out, he quickly ran into the tall grass unharmed!"
