The Sauvetage Animal Rescue organization announced Friday on social networks that it was attempting an operation to free the fox stuck on the ice in the waters of the Old Port of Montreal for ten days.

The animal is near the King-Edward wharf and would be unable to return to land because of an icebreaker that destroyed its path, Eric Dussault, general manager of the organization, told TVA.
