Fox spotted chasing squirrels at Capitol Hill

Your rating: None Average: 2 (1 vote)

Red Fox, photo by CNNCNN photojournalist Giaco Riggs took a few pictures of a Red Fox in pursuit of squirrels on Capitol Hill last Friday.

"It just showed up and was hunting a squirrel," Riggs was quoted by CNN as saying. "When he showed up, all the other squirrels ran away. When the fox went away, all the squirrels came back."

Riggs was on a stake out shoot of the Capitol when the fox appeared.

CNN's Bob Kovach ended his story with a lame duck joke, perhaps out of professional courtesy for rival FOX News.

It's good to know that even CNN resorts to "I saw a dog today!" on a slow news day.

Since Republicans won the Hill back, I guess the Fox has to chase after something on Capitol Hill since it's okay with the politicians there.

You seem awfully hostile.

I'm not sure this level of hostility is warranted from some cute animal pics.
