This wasn't any ordinary wild animal encounter.
Santa Clara County sheriff's deputies on Tuesday responded to a Los Altos Hills home to help a homeowner capture a fox that was running wild around the home.
One of the deputies managed to trap the fox inside a bathroom. A photo shared by the sheriff's office showed the fox standing inside a bathtub under the watchful eye of the deputy.
The fox was eventually released back into the wild, the sheriff's office said.
