Watch: Entangled fox freed from netting outside Pennsylvania school

Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Police in Pennsylvania came to the rescue of a fox that wound up entangled in netting outside of a school.

The Lansdale Borough Police Department said in a Facebook post that Sgt. Matthew "The Fox Whisperer" Erbele and Officer James "Steady Hands" Thompson responded to a call about an animal in distress at Lansdale Catholic High School.

The officers arrived to find a fox was entangled in netting outside the school and struggling to get free.

A video of the rescue shows police holding the fox steady while cutting through the net to free the animal.

"Don't bite. We're trying," an officer says in the footage.

The fox did not appear to be seriously injured and was released at the scene.
