Nashville, N.C. — A fox tested positive for rabies after attacking two people in Nash County, the Nash County Health Department said.
The fox was found in the area of Hurt Court and South First Street. Animal control trapped the fox, then euthanized it.
"Even though you may see an animal during the day, it does not necessarily mean the animal is potentially rabid," Matthew Ingram, Nash County Animal Control Supervisor said in a statement.
Nash County Animal Control says signs of rabies include:
- Impairment in balance or coordination
- Excessive aggression
- Foaming and or around the mouth
To report any wildlife displaying abnormal behavior in Nash County, call 252-459-9855.
