And now we're crying, thanks TikTok

TikTok always knows how to pull on the heart strings in one minute or less. This video did it in only 24 seconds. The video of a man feeding the foxes by the Dodder River in Dublin has gone viral on the app. Foxes are naturally skittish, so this man has a genius way of getting some food across the river to them. With a slingshot, Bart Simpson style.

This browser does not support the video element.

The video is so sweet and shows the foxes eagerly waiting for the treats to make their way over. The man feeds them dog treats and his aim is pretty good. Although some treats make it into the water, the man filming makes the point that the foxes will certainly find them.

Well, that's one nice way to spend an afternoon.
