A two-month old fox cub is undergoing daily massages at an animal sanctuary after being found abandoned.
Fox cub Bracken is recovering at the sanctuary
Bracken, a young vixen, is being cared for at Suffolk and Essex Small Animal Sanctuary, Leavenheath, Suffolk.
"She had a serious leg injury. The vet thought she had probably been born with it and abandoned by her mother, said sanctuary owner Maggie Jackaman.
"There's no way she could have coped in the wild and if she hadn't been found, she would have died."
Ms Jackaman added: "The vet suggested that we may be able to improve the leg with regular massages.
"Hopefully she might be one day be fit to be released back into the wild but if her leg doesn't improve, she'll have to stay here.
"We'll probably build her a pen outside where she can live."
