A crafty fox was caught stealing a loaf of bread and two entire boxes of eggs from a customer’s doorstep after they thought food kept being missed from their delivery.
The customer set up cameras on their doorstep in west London after the company said they were delivering the items.
Footage posted on Reddit on July 4 shows the milk, bread and eggs being delivered on the customer’s doorstep shortly after midnight.
The fox stole the loaf of bread from the doorstep in west London around 1.20am
Around 1.20am, a fox runs up to the doorstep and grabs the bread before running off.
It returns 20 minutes later and looks around before taking one of the two egg cartons in its mouth.
The fox runs down the garden path and hops through a gap in the fence without dropping a single egg.
It returns 20 minutes later and looks around as it prepares to take the eggs from the customer’s doorstep
The fox doesn’t drop a single egg as he takes the first carton in its mouth and runs off with them
It comes back for the second carton of eggs around 2.10am and still doesn’t drop any of the food as it runs off with it.
Shortly after 3am, the fox comes back and looks at the milk. It decides not to take it and runs away.
One Reddit user said: ‘The fact it took the entire loaf of bread and entire box of eggs without leaving any mess? I’m so impressed.’
Around 2.10am, it returns for the second carton of eggs. It still doesn’t make any mess
The fox returns and sniffs around the milk but decides against taking it and walks away
The customer said it was the third loaf of bread in a week that the fox had stolen and they ‘guess they’ve had a lot of practice to figure out how to get it without leaving a trace’.
They have since sent the video to the company with an apology for the complaint about their missing items.
Another said: ‘I love how the fox is looking around repeatedly before taking the food, like they’re aware they’re doing something sneaky.’
Someone else commented: ‘So much more considerate than the fox that keeps s****ing on my doormat.’
A third added: ‘Our foxes just scream and poop on our bins. You’ve got a better class of foxes round your way.’
In the morning, there is no evidence the bread and eggs were ever there as the fox doesn’t leave a trace
