Call it a real-life case of the quick brown fox jumping over the lazy dog.
Earlier this week, a woman in Ocean Beach, California noticed her dog playing with an unknown animal. At one point, the foreign critter ran into the woman’s house. So, she left a door open hoping wherever it ended up, it would eventually trot on back outside.
But the next day, she got a shock.
“She opened the door to find a fox laying on the counter!” the San Diego Humane Society posted on social media.
And, it had made a bit of a mess.
Our Humane Officer was called out to Ocean Beach yesterday because a fox had found its way into a resident’s home! Our Officer safely captured the healthy fox and released the animal back outside. Our Humane Officers have only had about three calls about foxes in their history! pic.twitter.com/e3qxfuqK7N

A humane society officer safely captured the sly fox. It was healthy and released.
“Our Humane Officers have only had about three calls about foxes in their history, so this was a very unique case!” the facility added.
