ME: Woman Bit; Neighbor Shoots, Kills Rabid Fox
The fox bit the woman in the leg while she was at her home on Cobbesseecontee Road. The fox then ran toward a neighbor's house. The neighbor shot and killed the fox before it bit anyone else.
Lab results showed the fox did have rabies. The bite victim is being treated and family members say she is recovering well.
