Fox Steals Woman's Handbag, Brings It Back a Few Minutes Later

The bag's owner can only assume the animal suddenly grew a conscience

A couple of days ago, one woman from Burgess Hill, West Sussex, England, made the horrid mistake of not paying close attention to her handbag.

Unfortunately for Anna Clark, a fox seized the opportunity, grabbed hold of the bag and then made a rather swift getaway.

Seeing how the handbag contained not just your run-off-the-mill make-up and paper napkins, but also the woman's phone, some money, several keys and a few letters, it need not come as a surprise that both Anna and her husband, who happened to see the fox running off with his wife's handbag in its mouth, were worried, to say the least.

However, it seems that this animal somehow understood that what it had done was uncalled for and blameworthy, and returned the bag to its rightful owners only a few minutes after it had snatched it.

Thus, the fox simply came back to the crime scene (i.e. a parking lot), dropped the bag and ran into hiding.

“I have no idea why, we couldn't believe it. We see the fox around quite a bit. I think people feed it,” Anna's husband, Jeremy, told members of the press.
