Blood is smeared over the walls and floors.
Broken pots and shards of glass litter the room.
It looks like the scene of a violent crime, but this is the aftermath of a raid by a fox.
Homeowner Malcolm Gerrard said: “I thought we were being burgled when I heard this huge crash. When I got downstairs it genuinely looked like a murder scene. It was chaos.
“Plates were smashing all over the place and he kept sliding off the kitchen counter.”
The fox – which got in through the back door – had cut itself on broken glass.
“The poor thing was so scared it had urinated everywhere,” said Malcolm. “I managed to stop him running into my computer and got a bite for my troubles.
"It was just a puncture but he had sharp little teeth and it drew blood.”
Malcolm, 38, called the RSPCA who caught the fox after 25 minutes and took it to a vet.
Malcolm and partner Katie Hayward, 38, spent five hours clearing up and disinfecting.
“I might even have to redecorate,” added painter and decorator Malcolm, who needed a tetanus jab and antibiotics.
He hopes insurance will cover the £500 of damage to their home in Ryde, Isle of Wight.
