Nothing to See Here Except a Fox Making a Giant Sandwich

A now-under-control forest fire that had threatened to encroach upon the abandoned Chernobyl nuclear plant may have created a lot of smoke and charred debris, but one thing it did not do is mess up one Ukrainian fox's sandwich-making skills. A radio crew in the Pripyat exclusion zone spied the little guy wandering around and laid out some bread and meat for him, ABC News reports. Before they could say "Carnegie Deli," the fox had deftly combined the disparate parts of his soon-to-be lunch into a five-layer sandwich, as seen in the video here.

Also notable in the video: the animal's nonchalant attitude about his repast preparation and his admirers. The BBC points out the fox likely didn't seem fazed by the humans because it probably didn't know what to make of them either way: The disaster zone has been more or less abandoned by people since the 1986 explosion. Radio Free Europe adds there's apparently been a recent uptick in foxes, wolves, and bears in the area. (Meanwhile, wild boars affected by Chernobyl have been deemed radioactive.)
