Watch: Quick fox steals, eats researcher’s hidden GoPro camera
Unfortunately, the fox was more aware of its surroundings than the sea lions. The animal immediately spotted the camera, chomped down on it and tried to carry it away to eat later.
After a brief chase, the researchers were able to recover the camera.
The GoPro worked even after the fox managed to chew off part of the lens.(Source)
The story buy Youtube User: "I went to Round Island, Alaska, to film wildlife with the University of Alaska Anchorage. My friends were photographing and filming sea lions when I spotted this fox come along. So I stupidly put my gopro on the ground in hopes of getting a close-up. When the fox ran off, I thought I'd never see my camera again. For about 8 minutes we looked for it, then there it was! It turns on and records, but the lens is messed up and I'll need to have it repaired. I'm glad the fox itself didn't get hurt or swallow anything that could have harmed it."
