Trappers often target grey fox, but not this time.
When Chris Gilliman caught this grey, he was hoping for something else.
Instead of dispatching the animal, he decided to release it.
Often, trappers release non-target catches without incident, but not his time.
Thinking the fox was calm, the trapper began to remove the uninjured fox.
That is when the fox decided to bite.
