This little fox was found sleeping on one of the back seats of an Ottawa city bus Sunday morning. Cute, eh? Apparently, the bus had been parked inside a garage for maintenance, and the fox got inside through an open door. Employees of the bus company couldn’t help but snap a few pics, which have been making a big splash on Twitter this week. The transit company later confirmed the fox had left without incident, leaping out a window after a Humane Society representative and a policeman boarded the bus to get a closer look. They tweeted:
Fox snuck onto bus while it was parked at a garage for regular maintenance – fox left on its own following nap.
