    Jogger runs mile with rabid fox locked on her arm Nov 5 03:27 PM US/Eastern 8 Comments PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - With a fox locked onto her arm, an Arizona jogger ran a mile to her car, where she was able to dislodge the animal, throw it into the trunk and drive to a Prescott hospital. The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said the fox, which later attacked an animal control officer, tested positive for rabies. The unidentified Chino Valley resident told deputies she was on a trail Monday at the base of Granite Mountain when the fox attacked, biting her foot. The woman said she grabbed it by the neck when it went for her leg and it latched onto her arm. Thinking the fox was rabid, she wanted to make sure it didn't get away so she ran to her car, where she was able to pry open its jaws, wrap it in a sweat shirt and toss it into the trunk. The woman is receiving rabies vaccinations, as is the animal control officer.

    Thunder smash!

      Holy crap!

          The IDENTICAL thing happened to a woman in Fairfax County, Virginia about 15 years ago, except that it was her leg that the rabid fox attached itself to. And yes, any mammal can become infected with rabies...
