Fox invades Moscow’s busy Domodedovo Airport

Fox invades Moscow’s busy Domodedovo Airport

Airline passengers passing through Moscow’s busy Domodedovo International Airport were surprised to see an unlikely jetsetter poking around the luggage belt and check-in area: a full-grown fox.

In social media footage filmed during the recent close encounter, the red fox can be seen wandering around behind the check-in desks, possibly trying to escape via the luggage belts, before turning and sprinting across the tiled floor toward the windows.

The creature can be seen pawing at the glass in vain, looking for an opening.

The airport press service said afterwards that CCTV footage showed the fox had spent several minutes inside the terminal before making its way outside again. It’s not clear where the animal went next, or how it completed its onward journey.
