A hungry fox looking for an entry into a chicken coup in the garden of a family home in the Netherlands attacked the person filming its actions on his phone.
Eduard Plate, a provincial councilor, saw the fox hanging around his neighbors’ chicken coup on Wednesday afternoon and began filming the canine.
A few seconds later, however, and unable to gain entry into the chicken coup, the fox turned around and noticed the man. It immediately charged at him, forcing Plate to run off and stop filming.
