Recommended Posts

My Brother delivers papers so the other day he was out and he has a older man on his route.  He brought the paper to this guy and a Fox came out from under the porch and bit my brother on the leg breaking the skin.  My Brothers dog a German Shepard jump out of the Toyota and killed the fox.  Fish and Game came took the fox for tests but in the mean time My brother is getting shots for Rabies as the Fox was likely rabid the Dog was treated at the emergency vet luckily she was not injured.  

 

He just cant catch a break

Oh jeez Gary that is absolutely scary! Here's hoping that damned fox was NOT rabid.

WOW

At least the fox was retrieved so the findings of the rabies test will be conclusive.  Sorry this happened.

Wow, what a story. Here is to a negative on the Rabies for your brother.

He may have caught a break when his pooch dispatched the Fox. Had it ran off and went un-captured he might have never known and someone else could have been attacked.

Not knowing if the fox was rabid they started him on the shots right away not a pleasant thing to have

Gee Gary, I hope your brother is going to be ok. A round of rabies shots is no fun.

I hope otherwise but probably rabid.  No fun, and i've been told the shots are very expensive.  I would quarantine the dog for a while as well, you never know for sure.  My best wishes for your brother.

I am sorry to hear that.  A fox in a neighborhood that attacks is not healthy, but it could be things other than rabies.  Good luck!...SelbyLowndes

Bummer.

 

Rabies shots aren’t that bad these days though.  15 years ago, in my attic, a bat flew past me and scratched my neck.  I called my doctor and he told me the “protocol” when scratched/bit with no recovery of the perp was rabies shots.  A few weeks of shots in the butt, and I was good to go.
