In the UK, a construction worker thought he was doing a good deed by rescuing a puppy from a building site. Later, he discovered the puppy was actually a fox cub.

The worker took the little critter home where he quite quickly discovered it wasn’t a puppy he’d rescued at all, but a baby fox who only resembled a small little dog.

The worker got a hold of the RSPCA when he realized it wasn’t a puppy in his care.

“The worker was on a building site in Speke when he came across what he initially thought was an abandoned puppy and as he could see no mother around he took him home,” Matt Brown, an animal welfare officer, told Metro.

The fox cub was taken in by an animal care organization. The organization took the cub to the vet where it was confirmed he was both a fox and only less than a month old!

According to the Metro, the little fox cub is going to be housed at the RSPCA’s Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre in Nantwich. There, he’ll be able to grow a little and be released back into the wild.
