A hilarious fox was caught by people swiping around 100 pairs of slippers, sandals, sneakers, and running shoes from a neighborhood in Berlin.
Christian Meyer, a resident of the southwestern neighborhood of Zehlendorf, was the one who found out who the thief was.
But first, let’s go back to what had initially happened.
Meyer noticed that his running shoes had vanished, so he ended up posting a message on Nebenan.de, a national notice-sharing website. However, he later realized that he was not the only one in their neighborhood to lose shoes.
Upon investigating, he spotted the fox nearby.

He said he caught it with a pair of blue flip flops in his mouth.
Well, he caught it red-handed, it’s time to call the cops.
Meyer said he spotted the fox on a patch of wasteland in the district.
He also uncovered the fox’s haul of multicolored footwear, however, the poor lad is yet to find his lost running shoes.
The good news is that 3 other pairs have been successfully returned to their owners.
