German photographer Jegen Horst noticed his cat was getting thinner and thinner, but the little guy seemed to be eating all his cat food at night? Jegen suspected a thief and set up a simple trap using his camera, a log, and an egg.

    who cares the fox got away and the cats still alive.. feed your damn cat inside if you so worried about it

  • lia

    That’s why you feed the cats *inside*…or put out enough for guests. 😉

    Why would you randomly decide to test with an egg instead of cat food? Does he feed his cat raw eggs? Is it training for a big fight with Apollo Creed?

    • Jim

      Did you think about the fact that he wanted to see if something OTHER than the cat was eating the food, so he used something the cat couldn't/wouldn't eat?

      See? The guy is smarter than you.

        Well, he's now proved that a fox will eat an egg, but not that a fox is eating the cat food. For all we know, foxes may hate cat food.

        • Jim

          Lol… yeah, this isn't a test to see what food a fox likes to eat. It's test to see if a fox is coming to the house at night; because anyone who knows anything about a fox (This is not you), will know it will not turn its nose up at what is essentially meat pate'.

          I wonder how many tests it would take you to figure out the same thing that most everyone else will have deduced with their common sense?

        • George

          "For all we know" ? You mean: " For little as I know" . Most everyone else has a brain.

          • Aeternus

            You're a real douche, George.

            • George

              Thanks for registering your objection, It had been dually noted.

              Please be aware though, that when making idiotic statements such as : " For all WE know, foxes hate meat", don't presume that everyone else is as stupid as you, and just say : "for all I know"

              You will draw less ire.

  • Some Dude

  • Jeff Mullin

    • Dr_StrangePants

      If i caught it
      i would name her: "Omelett"

  • George

    It's obvious you live in a city, and even though think you know everything, are very confused about setting up a game camera and baiting animals.

  • Joshua D. Loomis

    Color me crazy, but I think a much simpler solution would have been to put the camera on point where he feeds the cat. The only thing I can come up with is that he already knew it was a fox, so he planted something he knew it would eat (eggs) and wanted to catch some cool pictures from inside a log.,,,but even so, why not put cat food in the log? Because if he's feeding his cat eggs, than I don't think the fox is the reason his cat is skinny.

  • Vince

    Fucking hate rabbits.

    • HANK

      Fuckin rabbit, smells like shit!

  • saltygary

    That thing looks cool, should domesticate it.

    • Pete

      Yeah; it's called a dog.

  • charles

    who feeds cats out of a log in the first place? and why an egg, this whole story is a bunch of hooey!

  • equalizermax

    That is one expensive camera

  • copy and paste

    i expected more titties.

  • junior

    brilliant…think i'm going to try that on all the birds eating my dogs food…

  • zowie

    WTF!?! I didn't know cats ate eggs.

  • Jim

    "little guy seemed to be eating all his cat food at night?"

    Yup. He must have thought something was eating his cats food during the day.

    How much for some percs

  • Russel

    a speed light (flash) can not function as a light bulb. they can not sustain a "constant on" mode. it only flashes in bursts. he might've set up a motion activated trigger. also from the angle of the shot, it looks like it might've been during separate times.
