…more fox burglar. This remarkable story comes via the BBC, whose live broadcast nature series ‘Winterwatch’ has just started.
For the programme they set up various cameras in various locations in order to capture live footage of various wildlife doing various wildlife-y things: grouse lekking, hares boxing, foxes breaking into houses… Um, well, maybe not. Because the camera that was set up in a suburban garden to capture images of urban foxes actually snapped a runaway (alleged) burglar instead. Quite a coup, and very unexpected for the series producers, who are now liaising with the police to try to track the guy down.
He looks rather startled. I wonder if he heard the camera click, or whether he still has no idea he’s found fame in the national press?
