Jeremy Clark, 38, told The Argus how he was at home in Maple Drive, Burgess Hill, when he spotted a fox making off with his wife’s handbag – then return it to her.
“Next thing I knew he had my wife’s handbag in his mouth and was running towards the bushes.”
Jeremy screamed at the fox to drop the bag but he scuttled off out of sight.
But a few minutes later the guilty looking fox crept back into the car park with his bushy tail between his legs. In his mouth was Anna’s bag which he dropped at her feet before running off.
Hmm. A funny story. Don’t know what to make of it. But, he did note the fox seemed awful comfortable around people. Again, we see people attributing an emotion, guilt, to the animal that was not even domesticated. I’m skeptical of this story.
