Although wildlife encounters usually take place at the border between human communities and natural habitats, or most likely at the zoo, one fox pretty much stunned commuters using the London Underground when it decided to board the train and go for a ride.
A bit surprised and disturbed by the fact that it found itself surrounded by so many people, the fox finally abandoned the plan, got off its seat and made its departure.
Luckily, the people who were on the Tube managed to take some pictures of the animal, which now stand as proof of what they saw.
“I was a bit surprised! I'm from Norfolk and I see foxes there all the time, but normally in the fields - not on trains,” said one of the passengers.
As far as we are concerned, this incident goes to show that wild animals are continuously driven out of their natural habitats by the expansion of human society, something that forces them to adapt to entirely new environmental conditions such as those brought forth by life in the city.
