This is the moment a fox approached a pair of sandals outside Sajan Mohammed’s home in Potomac, Maryland before stealing them
Mr Mohammed’s wife had complained that her sandals had been stolen from the doorstep
‘I dismissed the issue and asked her to search for it. The next day she lost her sandals from the front door. That is when we realized that this was something else. So I started looking at our security camera.’
Mr Mohammed said he scrolled through the footage and saw the sandal was still outside at 3am, but by 3.20am it was gone.
On closure inspection he saw a fox approach and steal the sandal.
Amazingly, the fox returns after almost two minutes to carry off the second sandal from the doorstep.
