Fishermen Mallory Harrigan, Cliff Russell and Allan Russell were out a few miles off shore from Labrador, Canada recently when they came across something quite extraordinary. Something was atop a small, mushroom-shaped iceberg, drifting helplessly out to sea, and it wasn’t a creature designed for swimming. It was a starving and terrified Arctic fox, wet through and under attack from circling seagulls.
Crew aboard crab-fishing boat The Northern Swan noticed something weird, 4 miles away from the shore
“We gave him chips and crackers but he didn’t want anything until he woke up and we fed him a tin of Vienna sausages”
Back on dry land the grateful fox was released back into its natural habitat, a simple act of kindness from the crew had saved its life
