Fox Trot: Arizona Woman Runs One Mile With Rabid Fox Clamped on Arm

thumb_fox_red_foxIn Prescott, Arizona, Michelle Felicetta was jogging when she was attacked by a rabid fox, which locked on to her arm. The woman ran a mile with the fox clamped on her arm to get to her car. She then dislodged the animal, threw it into her trunk, and drove to the hospital.

Felicetta said that she thought the fox had rabies and wanted to hold on to it. She wrapped it in a sweat shirt after forcing its jaws open at the car.

The animal later attacked an animal control officer before it was tested and proved positive for rabies.
