There’s a reason why people say “sly as a fox.” With a beautiful coat and a bushy tail, these animals look gorgeous on the outside but carry a lot of hidden intentions on the inside. And wouldn’t you know it, when this guy encountered one of them in the middle of the street, he decided to snapchat the rare occasion. The animal, however, had a trick up its fur that caught the dude completely off-guard.

Scroll down to check out the footage that has amassed over 52,000 upvotes on reddit and learn why you can’t trust a fox!

Trying to pat a wild animal is quite dumb to begin with. And losing a wallet is the least of possible issues, it could've bitten and infected him with rabies or whatnot. Foxes are in the highest risk group in regards to that iirc. Do not follow this guy's example.

OK..In case some of you did not want to "see the video" for the dramatic conclusion (What is with that?)...The fox grabs the guy's wallet and runs away. It turns out the fox is part of an international identity theft ring. The fox is now living in a villa in Tuscany, while the guy is in a zoo in Birmingham, trying to convince the keepers he is a human being.
