A video of a fox taking food from RFE/RL Ukrainian Service journalists in the Chernobyl exclusion zone has gone viral, with more than 1 million hits on social and news media sites. The fox shows no fear of humans, stacking up meat and bread like a sandwich, which it carries off for later. The area was abandoned by humans after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986. There now appears to be an increasing number of foxes, wolves, and bears in the zone. (RFE/RL's Ukrainian Service)
