The best people to ask for advice about 'your' fox is 'The Fox Project' good old 'Google' will give you thier phone number. I'm not sure if they still carry-out rescues but are very helpful.
Many years ago there was a very poorly fox living close to our local park. After speaking to them, a 'Fox Project' volunteer came & set a Badger trip-trap/cage. This was baited with raw chicken. The first night the trap was set it caught a very angry (but full-of-chicken) cat. This was released unhalmed & the next night our target Fox took the bait. It was cared for by F/P the volunteer & returned fit & well some weeks later.
