A FOX cub has been rescued from behind a washing machine.

The cub was rescued from a Malvern property, after it “sought refuge” behind the washing machine from the owner’s dog.

Malvern Cops posted on Twitter today (May 22): “This is the first time I've ever helped rescue a fox cub from someone's house.

“Big thanks to Vale Wildlife Hospital @wildliferescuer for the quick response. Good luck little fox.”
