Animal rescuers in Britain said they responded to a cemetery where a not-so-clever fox made a "grave mistake" and ended up with its head trapped between gravestones.

The RSPCA said a member of the public contacted the group June 29 and reported a fox at St. Mary Magdalene Church's graveyard in Leamington Spa, England, had its head caught between two headstones.

The charity said Inspector Georgia McCormick was dispatched to the scene of the fox's "grave mistake."

"I'm not sure how he managed to get there, or how long he had been there for, but he really was in a tight spot. The call came into us at 11 a.m., and as foxes are nocturnal animals I can only imagine he had been there from the night before," McCormick said.

"I managed to carefully free him and check him over -- thankfully he wasn't injured and so he was released back into the wild," she said. "I dread to think what could have happened to him if we hadn't have been contacted."
