Fox Found Living Atop London’s Shard Skyscraper For Winged Humans

by | 25th, February 2011

ROMEO the fox has been found squatting on the top floor of The Shard, the shell of what will be the tallest building in the UK. Says Ted Burden, the centre’s founder:

“We explained to him that if foxes were meant to be 72 storeys off the ground, they would have evolved wings.”

Which is why the building that features flats, a spa, restaurants and offices is being marketed exclusively to winged humans, like Bono and Tony Blair.

Note: Why was the fox named Romeo? Did the builders plan to poison him and blame it on suicide? (The fox was captured and released.)
