Furry intruder: this fox stole the show at a soccer game in the United States
Time and time again, incidents of animals making “special appearances” at field games have found their way onto social media. After a cat hanging from the top deck of Miami Stadium during a college football game a few weeks ago sparked disturbing reactions online, now a clip of a wild fox running across the field during a soccer game in Arizona, USA brought a smile to many faces.
In the 30-second clip, which is now widely shared on social media, the animal – which broadcasters initially mistook for a cat – is seen running across the field during the Arizona State-USC game at Sun Devil Stadium. “By the way, we have an animal on the ground,” the commentator can be heard saying while trying to guess if the four-legged intruder was a cat.
“I don’t know if it’s a cat or not. It’s a fox. Not a cat, ”adds another commentator as the camera zooms in on the animal, which then runs towards the stands and jumps to the other side. The clip ends with another commentator calling the fox a “wild child” as he runs away.

It didn’t take long for the videos to go viral on social media and trigger amused reactions among internet users. However, many were also impressed with the animal’s giant leap towards the stands.
It was the most incredible jump I have ever seen.

I was wondering how this fox got into the stadium, but after seeing that epic jump in the stands, it’s no longer hard to imagine.
