In March, a rabid fox attacked Steve Troxler's wife, Sharon, as she tried to save her new puppy from the fox. Sharon Troxler underwent rabies treatments and the dog had to be put to sleep.
Over the weekend, the Troxlers got a new puppy and after a morning walk, a raccoon started scratching at their door. The Troxlers say it was foaming at the mouth and appeared to be rabid.
A farm worker shot the animal. This time, Troxler and the puppy did not get hurt.
