Fox steals iPhone, answers call, sends text message

Here’s the story of an iPhone-stealing, gibberish-texting fox that you are not likely to forget. The tale starts in Norway when 16-year-old Lars Andreas Bjercke and his friends noticed a fox hanging around the outskirts of his yard. To get the animal to come closer, he installed an app that attracts foxes by simulating the sounds of a dying rabbit and placed his iPhone on the ground.

Needless to say, the fox was very interested in the phone. After cautiously approaching it a few times, the fox surprised Bjercke and his friends by  grabbing it off the ground and high tailing it into the woods. It’s 2012, so, of course, the hilarious incident was caught on video.

After the fox escaped, Bjercke tried to call his iPhone and was surprised when the fox answered. The fox didn’t say anything, but Bjercke could hear the sounds of crackling wood in the background. More mayhem ensued the next day when the fox started texting gibberish to his girlfriend. His message — Jlv In ø \ a0ab 34348tu åaugjoi zølbmosdji jsøg ijio sjiw. Bjercke still hasn’t retrieved his phone from the fox, but he is hopeful that he will find it soon.
