Capitol Hill Fox: On the Hunt

Not only were there a plethora of Capitol Hill Fox sightings over the weekend, but our crowd-pleasing pal even sprang into action.



Evan Gildenblatt, a Kent State University alumnus, live-tweeted the latest CHF chronicles after spotting the fearless furball sunning itself on the lawn in front of the Capitol.

No longer satisfied with merely being an object of adulation, the CHF apparently decided to strike a little fear into the hearts of local admirers by savagely dispatching a too-slow squirrel.  “He put on a helluva of a show, … an old-fashioned safari-style kill,” the awestruck observer shared via Twitter.

Gildenblatt, who witnessed the chase and capture from start to finish, told HOH the brutal display happened right around 4:45 p.m. — prime time for visitors snapping pictures of the glowing Capitol just as the sun retreated beneath the horizon.

But, as we all know, there’s no such thing as a free lunch in this town. Even a celebrity like the CHF has to put forth some effort to fill its belly.

The question remains: When/where will the CHF pop up next?
