A video of a fox in the Chernobyl disaster exclusion zone taking bread and meat from people and stacking it into a sandwich has gone viral on the internet.

The video, shot in the uninhabited 20-mile zone around the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine that exploded in 1986, has been viewed more than one million times on social media websites, according to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty whose journalists filmed it during their recent reporting trip to Chernobyl.

The fox, which stacks meat and bread into a big sandwich that can barely fit in its mouth, shows no fear of humans who abandoned the area 29 years ago shortly after the worst nuclear disaster in history.

Despite the lack of people, there appears to be an increasing number of foxes, wolves and bears in the zone.
