When a lake freezes over its potential food supply, a fox has to get creative to get some fish.

For this fox, that entails approaching an ice fisherman in Russia who’s positioned in the middle of the lake—and he’s more than ready to hand out some morsels. According to the video description from Rita Long, a couple of foxes live nearby, and they play with Long’s cats and dogs and often come up to them begging for scraps.

We can only wonder how often the fox has pulled off this move to get some tasty fish.
