Rebecca Rothwell opens the crate to let a now-healthy fox run free again. The once-mangy critter, who was nicknamed Houdini because of his elusive nature, was finally captured in early July by a group of concerned citizens hoping to get him much-needed veterinary treatment. “We are thrilled with the support that has been extended to this fox,” said Rothwell, a member of the group that tracked the fox’s whereabouts with tips from the community. Houdini was treated by the Toronto Wildlife Centre and was brought back to Guelph to be released Friday evening. A female fox, also suspected to have mange, is still on the loose and was last sighted on Bellevue Street. Rothwell is hopeful that with help from the community, she will also be caught and cured. Flyers have been distributed asking people to keep an eye out for her.
