- Mrs Shaw was out walking with her husband in Riverside Country Park when they encountered the shy fox

Well, crumbs! This chocolate bourbon thief really takes the biscuit.
Quite how the cunning fox got hold of the snacks is anyone’s guess, but he seemed determined to hang on to his prize.
The hungry wild canine was spotted carrying around three or four of the chocolate sandwich biscuits stacked between its jaws.
Amateur wildlife photographer Tina Shaw came across the bushy-tailed critter while out with her husband in Riverside Country Park in Rainham, Kent, on Saturday.
The 60-year-old said: ‘It was amazing really, it was a surprise. We saw the fox coming from a distance and as it came towards us we did not see what was in its mouth.
‘He got near and just stood there. It does look fake but it is not. I do not know where he got them from.’
Mrs Shaw, who lives near the park, was taking pictures of the rabbits in the fields on Saturday evening when she came across the fox.
She added: ‘It was just one of those moments, a very rare moment. Obviously he was a vegetarian that night.
‘He then just ran away, he probably thought we would have taken his bourbons.
‘I would like to know where he got it from and what happened next. Someone must have left them or was having a picnic.’
