The RSPCA has said it was "faced with a very odd sight" when called to rescue a fox trapped by a floorboard.

Builders spotted the trapped animal's head poking out of a hole in the floor while renovating an office.

It is thought the fox was trying to wriggle through a section of flooring when it became stuck at the de Havilland campus in Hatfield.

RSPCA animal welfare officer Kate Wright, who freed the animal, said: "I just had these big eyes staring at me."

"Here was this fox's head poking out of a floor and he was so jammed he couldn't move.

"I actually think he had quite an embarrassed expression on his face."

He's gorgeous, poor baby, I think he would have been quite terrified initially and then resigned to his "fate".  If there was any look on his face it would be bemusement at these huge hairless creatures and their antics.  He might have even thought he was gonna be lunch until he was actually set free, what an ordeal.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Poor fox. Still, at least it's a happy ending to this story :)
