It didn't take long for one sly fox to suffer from robber's remorse after snatching the purse of a British woman recently.

Jeremy and Anna Clark of West Sussex, England were standing in their driveway this week when a 1.25-foot red fox sauntered up to them.

"He looked at me for a few seconds before letting out this feeble yelp," Jeremy said of the fox. "Next thing I knew he had my wife’s handbag in his mouth and was running towards the bushes."

Jeremy screamed at the fox to return with Anna's purse, which had her phone, keys, money and more. The fox trotted on and into the bushes.

A few minutes later, however, the fox returned. It dropped Anna's purse at her legs and ran off. Needless to say, the Clarks were shocked.

"I have no idea why, we couldn’t believe it," Jeremy said. "We see the fox around quite a bit. I think people feed it."
