A mischievous fox made off with a motorist’s car keys after he pulled over to take a video of it.

Driver Donatas Petraitis had stopped at the side of the road in Anyksciai, Lithuania, after spotting the fox.

Wishing to take a detailed video of the cute animal, he jangled his keys to bring it closer, before throwing them on the floor in front of him.

The fox tentatively came forward to investigate, before leaping back in fear.

Eventually summoning the courage, it tiptoed forward and grasped the keys in its mouth, before turning tail and running.

Shocked Petraitis attempted to give chase; however he realised the nimble creature far outpaced him through the dense woods.

Thankfully, the fox soon tired of carrying the heavy key fob and abandoned it amongst the trees, where Petraitis found it later on.

The video has gone viral since he posted it to his Facebook page earlier this month, receiving over 100,000 shares.
