The fox that attacked a grounds maintenance worker and bit two dogs earlier this week in the Hampton subdivision in north Forsyth was killed by a man in that community, authorities said.
The man, whose name was not released, contacted the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office today [Friday] saying he killed the fox Tuesday that attempted to attack his dogs. Not knowing that an alert had been issued regarding the fox possibly being rabid, the man disposed of the wild animal before it could be recovered by the sheriff’s office. This was the same day the fox had attacked the grounds worker and dogs.
