A fox was trapped in a lattice and couldn’t find his way outside. After extensive rescue, the uninjured animal was released into freedom. Around noon yesterday, passers-by informed the local hunter about a fox that was trapped in a lattice rack of the car park 1 of Dortmund Airport. Since the hunter could not act here alone, he asked the colleagues of the airport fire brigade for help in the liberation of the animal. In order to be able to safely capture and transport the curious little guy, who had got lost in the area after the liberation, was called in via the emergency control center of the fire brigade of the equipment cart animal rescue.
After the team from Marten arrived, the liberation action could be started. For this purpose, the lattice handle was opened with the tools of the fire engine and the fox was captured with a net. After a short inspection, the hunter classified the animal as unharmed. The fox was safely housed in a transport box and released to freedom in the company of the hunter at an appropriate location. After two hours and twenty minutes, the operation, involving eight firefighters from Fire Station 5 (Marten) and the Airport Fire Brigade, was over.
