A Frigiliana resident was able to capture the moment a fox ran down one of the village's streets last week.
While foxes are not uncommon in the area, actually sighting one is rare. It is believed that the animal had come down from nearby mountains in search of food.
A video which can be seen on the Diario SUR website shows the fox running down steps before being startled by car headlights, turning round and running back up.
"I'm not sure who was more surprised," said the resident who recorded the video.
