LegacyDL: So what does the fox say?
KrispyKritter: Vietnam Vet being a key part of the story. Never miss a chance for patriotic propaganda, small town media.
SwiftFox: "There's little kids next door," Chomas said. "He's got a tiny dog. If he had gotten a hold of one of the kids or the dog, he would have killed them for sure."How many children a year are killed by foxes, now?Rabies shots if bitten, yes.
TV's Vinnie: Oh FFS! Another dumbass assuming a fox was rabid simply because it came up to him.Were there any symptoms of rabies like the animal might have been staggering or otherwise acting odd? Here's a quick guide to tell:http://www.ehow.com/how_5595511_tell-animal-rabies.htmlAnd foxes "play bite" a lot as a sign of affection. As one person put it, "People pet foxes with their hands. Foxes pet people with their mouths".IMO, this may have been someone's pet fox that escaped (and was used to being around people). Or just a wild fox who was used to an urban environment and wanted to play.I feel more sorry for the fox than I do for the stupid geezer.
SweetSaws: I'm also curious about if an adult male could take on a black bear. Besides the teeth and claws could the adult male successfully fight a bear?
