Fox and Robin Treated at Iceland Animal Hospital

The animal hospital in Garðabær, a neighboring town of Reykjavík, had rather unusual patients yesterday: a redwing with an injured leg and a baby fox in need for a medical examination.

Guides from Þríhnúkagígur, a hollow volcano popular among tourists in Southwest Iceland, transported the pup to the hospital, ruv.is reports.

They had repeatedly encountered the wee fox this summer and it had become rather tame. When they noticed that it had a limp, they decided to have it examined.

An x-ray showed that the pup had twisted its leg. However, further treatment proved unnecessary and it was discharged after the examination.

However, the redwing was admitted and will be treated at the hospital until it recovers.
