Police in Germany responded to a call to help apprehend a small, furry and cute escaped member of a nearby zoo.

Who doesn't love animals? They are unique, adorable and lovable creatures created by the same God who hung the sun, moon and stars in place. They were even put on Earth by God before man, according to Genesis.

In addition to being cute and cuddly, animals also make for excellent and loyal companions. Regardless of how good or bad a day you may have had, that beloved dog or cat cannot wait until you return for the evening. Likely, they wouldn't ever think of leaving or escaping their loving and caring home to explore the great outdoors.

However, one cute little animal had other plans. He wanted to get out and do some exploring. And so, an arctic fox managed to escape from the zoo in Weißwasser, Germany. But his outing was foiled by....himself, according to Sunny Skyz.

Police found the animal after witnesses altered them about the tired fugitive, who was trying to get some shuteye in the roadway. While the fox selected an odd and dangerous place to take a nap, he was not injured, police added. Those same witnesses who called authorities made sure the animal was unharmed. They kept vehicles from driving by the fox.

After the fur-covered little guy was recovered, a staff member safely returned the animal to his home in the German zoo.

At this point, it's unclear how the cute little guy was able to escape his enclosure at the zoo. The arctic fox was not immediately available for comment.
