Tests show fox that bit girl in Henrico was rabid

HENRICO, Va. (AP) — Henrico County police say a fox that bit a girl’s ankle has tested positive for rabies.

Police spokeswoman Lt. Linda N. Toney says the fox was shot Sunday by an adult family member after he saw it bite the girl.

Toney says the people who were exposed to the fox have sought medical treatment. A dog will be quarantined because it might have been exposed.
