Outfoxing an urban fox

 Last summer, residents in the leafy Berlin suburb of Zehlendorf noticed that a thief was stealing their flip flops and sport shoes from their gardens and yards at night. One resident raised the issue on the neighborhood watch website, and other locals complained that their flip flops were missing too.

Finally a men spotted the culprit "carrying two blue flip flops in his mouth," the daily Tagesspiegel reported. It looked like a dog, but was really an urban fox. Eventually residents found where the fox had hidden his hoard -- more than 100 shoes. Lesson? Don't leave your flip flops in the garden overnight.
