During a visit to Chernobyl's exclusion zone, a team of Radio Free Europe journalists met a "rather thin-looking" fox.
He didn't seem to fear humans, having presumably not met many in the nuclear fallout zone, and trotted down the steps to approach them.
Taking pity on the fox, the group tossed it a few slices of bread and bacon
The fox didn't just gobble them straight up however, no, he wanted to do it right, carefully assembling a five-deck bacon sandwich with his jaw before making short work of it.
The moment made for a quick segment on the BBC News, drawing millions of views.
Just huge admiration for this fox's culinary skills. Definitely intrigued to see what he would do with 10,000 Doritos, salsa, guac and some queso fresco.
