Rabid fox bites Sedona child
The Daily Courier

Yavapai County recorded the first rabid animal attack of the year for Arizona on Wednesday.

A rabid fox bit a child outside the child's home near Elmerville Road in Sedona, Yavapai County Community Health Services announced Friday.

An Arizona Game and Fish Department officer killed the fox, and a rabies test came back positive Thursday, the county news release said.

A second fox that's behaving abnormally may continue to roam the Sedona area, the news release said. Officials are asking people to report wild animals exhibiting rabies symptoms by calling 602-942-3000.

The child will need rabies shots to avoid possible death.

Oh that poor child. Guess we need to keep our eyes open now and keep our properties protected as much as possible. Those of us with property completely fenced will find it much easier than those with open properties to those individuals will have to be extra diligent.

Some people got bitten/scratched by a rabid bobcat here in StoneRidge, The bobcat was killed, tested positive. It began a long series of shots and recovery. My prayers go out to the victim.
