A video of a fox in the Chernobyl exclusion zone stacking handouts of bread and meat has gone viral on the internet.

The fox, who appears not to be afraid of humans, trots up and begins stacking pieces of bread and meat into its mouth to take back to its den.

The fox doesn't eat the food right away and could be a mother fox getting food for its pups.

The video was taped by a Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Reporter who was in the area doing a story on the Chernobyl exclusion zone.

It's been viewed more than a million times on the internet.

The 20 mile area around the Chernobyl nuclear plant has been uninhabited since the plant there exploded in a meltdown in 1986.

There are a growing number of foxes, wolves and bears in the area.

The number four reactor at Chernobyl exploded April 26th, 1986 and released large amounts of radiation.

The fallout affected an estimated 2.2 million people including a half-million children.
