Window of little opportunity: Corral Dr., 9700 block, Potomac, May 7. A homeowner discovered a baby fox that had fallen into a window well and could not escape. A Humane Society field agent rescued the fox and, after determining it was not sick or injured, released it. It is not known how long the fox had been stuck in the window well.

Dog jumps fence, bites passerby: Lindell St., 2800 block, Silver Spring, May 9. A Rottweiler mix escaped from its yard, jumped over a fence and bit a resident. An animal services officer went to the dog’s residence to talk to its owner, who was not at home. Because the dog could potentially jump the fence and bite again, the canine was taken to the county shelter. The dog was released to its owner and was required to undergo a standard 10-day home quarantine. The victim sustained minor injuries.
