Urban foxes have had a bad reputation for a while now. The 'dangerous dogs' de nos jours, if you will.
So we're delighted to hear of a news story that paints our foxy friends in a new, (slightly) more pleasant light.
Yes, behold the fox (not the one in the photo above - that was posed by a model) who stole a woman's handbag in Burgess Hill, West Sussex... only to return it.
“We were in the [estate's] car park and he looked at me for a few seconds before letting out this feeble yelp," Burgess Hill resident Jeremy Clark told The Argus. “Next thing I knew he had my wife’s handbag in his mouth and was running towards the bushes."
But just moments later, reports the paper, the "guilty-looking fox crept back into the car park with his bushy tail between his legs. In his mouth was Anna’s bag which he dropped at her feet before running off."
Of course, what The Argus and Mr Clark fail to mention is that Anna's wallet was missing from her handbag, and the fox was later seen buying drinks for everyone at Mooch@76 bar on Church Walk. Possibly.
Anyway, congratulations, Mr Fox. You really are fantastic, and may have single-pawedly helped to rehabilitate foxes in the eyes of us mere humans.
Alex wandered over to the closest ladder. A small girl descended with a basket full of apples. Alex grinned at her. The little girl screamed and dropped the basket. She ran away, yelling for her mother. Alex stuck his head in the basket and began eating apples. He heard voices coming towards him.
"Now April, you know what I've said about fibbing. There are no alligators in this orchard." said April's mother. Alex pulled his head out of the basket and grinned at April's mother.
"Ahhhh!" she screamed. April and her mother ran away as fast as they could.
Alex walked over to another tree. A man was climbing down the ladder. He stepped on Alex's back. Alex grunted and tried to walk away. The man looked down at Alex and yelped. The man dropped his basket and ran toward the house. Alex ate all the apples in his basket.
Just then, Allison came running into the orchard.
"Alex!" she yelled. Alex took one look at Allison and bolted back into his pen. Allison followed him.
"So you're the one who ate all my apples." she said. "I'd better fix your cage."
Once Alex's cage was fixed, he could no longer go into the apple orchard. Alex stared longingly at the trees full of apples.
At dinner time, Allison brought Alex a steak as usual.
"You are a bad boy, Ales," she said. "But I can't blame you for liking apples. I brought you a surprise."
Allison went outside the cage, and picked up a basket. It was full of apples! Alex ate all the apples before he ate his steak.
