They tried to move closer to the fox, but the scared animal wouldn't let them.

So they grabbed a net and scooped the fox into the boat. The fox was in pretty bad shape, so they attempted to give him some food. But the poor fox was so scared that he wouldn't take anything from them. Once they got to port, they put the fox in some sawdust, in hopes of drying him out.

Finally, the little fox decided to eat some Vienna sausages that the crew gave to him.

"After a while, when he was coming around, he liked us more, because we were feeding him. And he didn't mind us after." The fisherman assumed that the fox was looking for food, and when they ice broke, he drifted further from shore. If it wasn't for the fishermen, that poor little fox wouldn't have made it another day.
