Chernobyl Fox Knows Exactly What To Do When Given Food

May 3, 2015 By Archit Tripathi
In 1986, a meltdown at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor (in present-day Ukraine) forced the evacuation of thousands of people and resulted in the creation of a 30-mile exclusion zone. The area was completely sealed off until 2011, when the Ukrainian government opened up parts of the sealed area to tourists and researchers wanting to learn more about the disaster.

In that time, due to lack of competition with humanity, several animals started gradually returning to the area. Even today, radiation levels are far too high for human habitation, and the government estimates the area won't be safe for that for another 20,000 years. While the effects of the radiation on the animals are still being examined, they may just have made one fox smart enough to make a quintuple-decker sandwich. Even though it's got a little too much bread for my taste, it's still impressive.
