Member of the Vulpine Commons gives UK Commons sign of approval

Your rating: None Average: 4 (1 vote)

If you want to see how much vulpes vulpes appreciated the UK government's vote for a ban on fox hunting with dogs (Or maybe it's just nature's sense of irony at work), visit the BBC News article about a fox that was found sleeping on top of a filing cabinet in the UK's House of Commons.

According to the article, about a month ago a fox managed to get past the notoriously tight House of Commons security, climb three flights of stairs and take a nap on a filing cabinet. Accomodations were made so as not to wake the sleeping creature until a way could be found to move him to more appropriate surroundings without waking him. One official is quoted in the article as saying, "Our policy here is to let snoozing foxes lie."
