Red fox swipes, mangles GoPro
A red fox seriously injured a GoPro and it was all caught on camera.
Last week, a curious fox took the small camera, then ran off with it for several minutes.
University of Alaska Anchorage professor Travis Rector and his friend captured the footage during a trip to Round Island in northern Bristol Bay. The two are working on a film about wildlife on the island for the UAA Planetarium.
Rector says the GoPro still turns on and records, but the lens needs to be repaired. He says he’s glad the fox didn’t get hurt or swallow any of the parts.
