Fox sandwich video goes viral

Fox in Ukraine with a sandwich in its mouth; Chernobyl, Ukraine

A video of a fox in Ukraine’s Chernobyl exclusion zone stacking handouts of bread and meat has gone viral.

The fox, who appears not to be afraid of humans, trots up and begins stacking pieces of bread and meat into its mouth to take back to its den. It was recorded by a reporter who was doing a story on the Chernobyl exclusion zone.

It’s been viewed more than a million times on the internet.

The 30 kilometre area has been uninhabited since the nuclear power plant there exploded in a meltdown in 1986.


  1. A smart Ukrainian fox…. What a great video. A feel good story from a tragic place. Ukraine actually has a storybook character named Lys Makita, a popular kids’ book character. They should name the sandwich making fox after the book character.
