There's a frisky fox causing trouble and its been the subject of complaints in the city over the past few days. A few minutes ago, the critter "acted aggressively toward a patron" who was about the enter the theater at 56 Harvester Ave., according to a caller to the emergency dispatch center.
It was subsequently reported to be laying in the road on Haller Place, across the street. Now its spotted on the west side of the Graham Manufacturing Corp. property. Police are responding.
UPDATE 12:21 p.m.: The carcass of the fox will be picked up by a county worker in about 10 minutes. It's located east of Harvester Avenue, west of the railroad tracks.
This is sad. You're telling me no one could trap it and relocate it?
That's true. Foxes are typically not aggressive animals. I suppose they had to assume it was sick. Still sad.
This is very sad. I saw this fox every evening when I walked and it was never agressive.
This fox has been living in the woods located between Florance ave and Webster ave for a few years. You can even finds its abandoned den there, as it had pups in the spring. I saw it on an almost daily basis this spring while running in the cemetery and the sand-wash. My dad always said that the older a fox got, the meaner it got, and if you got one young enough, they make great dogs/pets.
Hey world, lets leave some woods for the cute animals...kk. thanks.
The fact that the fox was acting aggressively, is an indication it possibly was rabid. Fox aren't normally aggressive towards humans, and will shy away from people.
We have a pair of red fox that wander through our complex at night, which is backed by a 2 square mile section of woods. Anytime we're outside and the fox see us, they turn into the woods and run off.
