Meet the fox in the forest along Xinjiang's Kanas Lake
Updated 14:34, 23-Jul-2020

Driving on the roadway along Kanas Lake, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, a fox suddenly appeared in the forest. The driver stopped the car, and passengers tried to get a closer look at the unexpected creature, cautiously and quietly. 

Instead of running away, the fox sat down and scratched its head and ear in front of them, just like a puppy. 

Kanas Lake is one of the most impressive nature reserves in Xinjiang, where a close relationship between human and nature has been built, wildlife such as snow leopard, ibex and red deer are well protected there.
