The workers at Site Clear Solutions in Cannock found a group of three fox cubs roaming around the yard which appeared to have been abandoned by their mother.

The workers fed the poorly cubs over the next couple of days and encouraged them to come into the cages they had set up on site.

Unfortunately, one of the cubs died, but the two siblings were eventually persuaded to go into the cage and were cared for with regular food.

The work done by the workers to help the cubs saw members of Cuan Wildlife Rescue, from Much Wenlock in Shropshire, travel down to take over the care and treatment of the cubs.

A spokesman for Site Clear Solutions said on Facebook: "It's just all in a day's work at Site Clear. One minute the lads are recycling waste, the next they could give Pet Rescue a run for their money.

"The quick thinking of the lads at Site Clear's yard resulted in the rescue of two very poorly fox cubs.

"Having been abandoned, the lads set about to try and recover the cubs who had been roaming around the yard.

"They fed the cubs over a couple of days and encouraged them into the cage.

"Unfortunately one cub didn't make it but the other two siblings did.

"We are pleased to say that Cuan Wildlife Rescue travelled down to our site to take over the care and treatment of the cubs.

"Hats off to the lads for giving these beautiful creatures a second chance in life."

Site Clear Solutions have also set up a donations page for people to donate funds towards the work Site Clear Solutions do.
