Video: chicken-hunting fox lashes out at cameraman

A man in Zeewolde got quite a fright when the fox he was filming suddenly decided to turn its attentions on the man.

The fox seemed to be looking for a way into a chicken coop when he noticed the man filming him.

It is not clear whether the fox simply did not like being filmed without his permission, or if the man looked tastier than the chickens, but either way, it makes for an amusing video.

As far as is known, neither the man nor the fox was harmed during the making of this film.

According to Eduard Plate, the man who shot the film and posted it on Twitter, the fox has since been caught by Animal Control. A fox attacking instead of running away is a rare occurrence.
