Fox Attack!

Here's a strange story:  A woman taking a walk in Pennsylvania was attacked by a red fox and had to strangle it with her bare hands, then suffocate it with a garbage bag.  Now there's a dispatch method I've never tried!  Authorities are testing the fox for rabies, of course, and with behavior like that it's probably infected.  As the season approaches this is a timely reminder to be careful with animals exhibiting weird behavior, and to take protective cautions when dispatching or fur handling. 

This is the best quote from the woman's interview:

"I want that fox's pelt.  I think I deserve it."
