For many people across the world, there are few things more rewarding than looking after a beloved pet. With that in mind, it’s sometimes easy to forget just how capable non-domesticated animals are out there in the wild. Indeed, one such case stunned a group of experts back in June 2018.

Now the previous summer, researchers had put a tracker on an Arctic fox, as they looked to study its movement. What’s more, the employees at the Norwegian Polar Institute noticed some significant activity around eight months later in 2018. However, no one could’ve predicted what happened next, or that the animal might set a record.
