  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A fox has been tracked more than 40 miles (70km) away from its home range, breaking the previous British record.

The fox was named Fleet by University of Brighton researchers and fitted with a satellite tagged collar.

Scientists were surprised to record Fleet walking a total of 195 miles (315km) as he headed into the Sussex countryside from his home in the city.

I wish our postmen were foxes.  Some can hardly walk up a flight of stairs.
