A Fox, Chicken and Sack of Grain

You have a fox, a chicken and a sack of grain. You must cross a river with only one of them at a time. If you leave the fox with the chicken he will eat it; if you leave the chicken with the grain he will eat it. How can you get all three across safely?

Fox and (little) chicken

Take the chicken over first. Go back and bring the grain next, but instead of leaving the chicken with the grain, come back with the chicken. Leave the chicken on the first side and take the fox with you. Leave it on the other side with the grain. Finally, go back over and get the chicken and bring it over.

Take the chicken, go back grab the fox, when you drop off the fox take the chicken back with you, leave the chicken but grab the grain, go across and leave the grain with the fox, then go back and get the chicken…. then cook the chicken because you are craving KFC but you are in the middle of the woods…. the end

How do you get a chicken off of a boat, put it down, and pick up a wild fox, without the fox attacking the chicken? I mean, assuming these two animals care about nothing but eating. Since, in reality, they would just run away from you. Nothing about this riddle is logical.
