ANCHORAGE, AK — A group of researchers studying sea lions in Round Island, Alaska, decided to hide a GoPro camera to film a fox they saw heading their way.

Unfortunately, the fox was more aware of its surroundings than the sea lions. The animal immediately spotted the camera, chomped down on it and tried to carry it away to eat later.

After a brief chase, the researchers were able to recover the camera.

The GoPro worked even after the fox managed to chew off part of the lens.
