Douglas County urges caution after rabid fox chases neighbors and attacks pet

ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) – A rabies alert has been issued in Douglas County after several neighbors reported they were chased and a pet was attacked by an aggressive fox.

Authorities said the fox injured a pet but did not harm anyone else.

Douglas County Animal Services was called to Mann Road and Richardson Road on June 22 where they found a dead fox in the backyard of a home.

On Friday, the Georgian Ministry of Public Health said in a press release that a fox had tested positive for the rabies virus.

Authorities say the animal that was attacked has been vaccinated but will be backed up and placed in quarantine for the next 45 days.

Douglas County Animal Services would like to remind the public not to touch or interfere with wildlife, whether they appear healthy or sick.

Pets should be vaccinated annually against the threat of rabies.

If you see a rabies-carrying animal, such as a fox, raccoon, bat, or coyote acting strangely or aggressively, contact Animal Control immediately at 770-942-5961.
