Diesel was located in the Welsh port town of Newport. He was found by a dockworker trapped between some pipes trying to chew his way out, covering himself in Diesel in the process. When he arrived at the RSPCA's rehabilitation centre, Diesel had lost a lot of fur and his survival was touch and go.

He's only a small fox, but what he lacks in size, he makes up in fighting spirit. He made a speedy and full recovery. He is now an extremely lively fox and has returned to his home, the docks.

Diesel was a rehabilitated fox. He was fitted with a GPS collar and released into the wild on 5 April 2012.
