A fox had quite the adventure Thursday night as it sneaked past a police into Portcullis House, one of the British government offices in London.

The clever creature outfoxed several officers, making its way into the building's atrium and onto its escalators, taking an afterhours tour of the House of Commons, Great Britain's equivalent of the United States' House of Representatives.
It cruised the halls with officers in hot pursuit, reportedly relieving itself outside Member of Parliament Kerry McCarthy's office, before it was finally apprehended and removed from the building.

Maybe it wanted to drop in and thank MPs for not overturning the contentious fox-hunting ban, which, enacted in 2004, makes it illegal for fox-hunting to be practiced with the use of dogs.
