Fox suspected of spoiling Easter egg hunt in Vienna

WASHINGTON —A sneaky fox is suspected of ruining a family’s Easter egg hunt Sunday morning.

Micha Joffee put out 36 eggs around his home in Vienna, Virginia, at around 11 p.m. Saturday in preparation for his children’s Easter Egg Hunt in the morning. To Joffee’s surprise, his 8-year-old and 3-year-old only found six eggs.

Joffee said he believed teenagers might have stolen the eggs and decided to review surveillance tapes from outside his home.

The tapes show a fox snooping around the bushes in the front yard of Joffee’s home at 3:23 a.m.
