Guy Gets Too Close To Wild Fox While Snapchatting It, And Now He Wishes He Hadn’t

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!

What would you do if you met a cute fox on the street?

I do have a habit of placing stuff on the ground I've previously had in my hands if I need to tie my laces/want to take a quick photo etc. Totally can see myself doing this as I love foxes.

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.
