It is normal to see fox cubs during the day wandering about above ground from the age of about four weeks. Therefore if you find a cub it is quite likely that it is not abandoned and that its parents or close relatives are not too far away.
If the fox cub is uninjured, in a safe spot and not in danger from traffic please leave it alone.
If the cub is in danger such as on an exposed roadside and uninjured move it to a sheltered safe spot nearby, handling it with gloves if possible to avoid scenting it.
If you find an older cub, with its eyes open and if after leaving it for 12 hours it is still in the same spot, it is generally still better to leave it in the wild and call your nearest wildlife centre for advice.
If the cub is obviously sick, injured or distressed call your nearest wildlife centre for advice.
If you must remove an injured animal from the area, handle it with gloves if possible and make a note of the exact location where you found it and call your nearest wildlife centre for advice.
It is essential that you do not try to rear or care for the animal yourself.
