Sly fox steals a smartphone, then answers a phone call and sends a text

Sly fox steals a smartphone, then answers a phone call and sends a text
This is just too funny to be true, but it is - a teenager in Norway downloaded an app for hunters with dying rabbit sounds, and it worked. After testing it out a couple of times, 16-year-old Lars Andreas Bjercke experimented by placing it on the road.

Not long after the fun part began. A fox heard the sounds from the app and saw the phone laying on the ground. After circling it a few times it quickly snatched it with its jaw and ran away to the surprised eyes of the teenager.

Bjercke could not chase it and then tried to call the device to locate it. 

Funnily enough, the fox obviously somehow pressed the button to answer the call, and all the teenager could hear was crackling sounds.

It does not end there. One of Bjercke’s friends received a text message after that with the following text: "Jlv In ø \ a0ab 34348tu åaugjoi zølbmosdji jsøg ijio sjiw.” Next thing we know, the fox would be calling people on Skype, don’t you think? It’s all on tape, so check it out right below.

Did i see a bald 16 year old running or was it the teenager's dadddy (from 27 to 30 sec)? Ok so if it was both daddy and the teenager doing it then looks like they got bored of the "boring phone" and decided this as best way to dispose it off.

Where I'm the article does it say it was an iPhone the fox got? In the screenshot, the grey text is the fox, it could be any phone. The video wasn't really clear either. You people are so sad, you use anything as an opportunity to troll.

man whats up with all the hating in the comments? whats with the "us vs. them" attitude. This is the same type of attitude that sparks racism, or any other intolerance. It's an OS, and that is all. Please just because you find something that suits you, don't be so ignorant as to dismiss anyone else's choices as irrelevant.
