Yesterday I saw a wild fox sit by the door of a car, just like a dog waiting for a treat.

Evidently some tourists are feeding foxes, but... are they also training them, or is this behavior innate?

@BarkMarnett do wolves also beg this way?

If you play games on Steam, I highly recommend manually backing up your save date, even if you have cloud sync. I've completely lost save files in the past, including save files from games that use cloud sync.

Since the location of save files varies by game and can be hard to find sometimes, I recommend using a site called pcgamingwiki.com. They have information about most games, including the location of a game's save file. It's a very useful website.
