A bold fox clambered onto a London bus (the number 12 to be precise) during rush hour this morning, made his way to the top deck and then alighted at the Imperial War Museum. Commuter Andrew Woodcock tweeted a photo of the fox, writing: “That stuff about urban foxes adapting to city life is clearly nonsense. This one didn’t even have his Oyster card.”

He explained: “I was on the top deck of the bus, heading up St George’s Road, when I noticed a movement at floor level out of the corner of my eye. I looked down and it was a fox, walking along the aisle towards the front staircase. It had its head down low and was slinking along as if trying to avoid being noticed, but it didn’t seem panicked or scared at all.” If that’s not a true London fox, we don’t know what is!
It appears that foxy was heading out for an educational day because they arrived at the Imperial War Museum, the driver came on the tannoy and said “Ok guys, it looks like we’ve got a fox on the bus. We’re just going to wait here a while and try to coax him off’. As soon as the doors opened, the fox trotted down the stairs and hopped out onto the pavement.” Let’s hope he had a great day out!
