Fox hitches ride on Russian Far East cargo ship

VLADIVOSTOK, April 7 (RIA Novosti) - Sailors on a cargo ship traveling from Kamchatka to Vladivostok in Russia's Far East rescued a fox that had been stranded on an ice floe, the Komsomolskaya Pravda daily reported on Tuesday.

"The fox may have been hunting a seagull in strong winds. She was lucky that we came along," the captain of the ship, Vladimir Popov, told the paper.

The animal, who sailors named Alisa, spent 12 days onboard the freighter, posing for cameras and willingly accepting food, especially sweets, from the crew.

However, when the crew tried to lead her off the vessel, the fox hid in a cold-storage room and was later taken to a vet in Vladivostok. The animal will now be placed in a nature reserve.
