WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- He's pretty crafty, but Supreme Court personnel are fairly certain he's not a member of the bar. However, he may be making his home inside the Supreme Court.
Supreme Court police were still looking Monday for a wild fox that slipped into the Capitol Hill building Sunday. The fox entered through a basement driveway and was spotted by a police officer and on videotape.
A search of the building turned up nothing, so a special dog team -- two foxhounds and a border terrier -- was brought in from a Middleburg, Va., hunt club. The dogs tracked the fox to an interior elevator and lost the scent.
Supreme Court authorities are just hoping the fox doesn't run into the courtroom in the middle of argument.
"At this point, we have to assume he's still in the building," one high court source told United Press International.
