A Beacon man fended off a rabid fox with a loaf of bread, after it ran from under his pickup truck and attacked him.
Gary Kemp had just arrived at his home in the Oak Meadows mobile home park when the fox charged at his leg.
"The fox was hiding underneath the Bronco, and he came out and charged at me, and started making this weeping noise as he was charging," Kemp said.
The gray fox attacked his legs, and Kemp, who was carrying a loaf of sliced bread, was able to defend himself and chase the fox away.
His neighbor's dogs chased the animal back down the hill.
"I thought it was coming back to get me again," Kemp said. "It started coming back down after me, but ran back up the road" in another direction.
Kemp said he went into his home and applied rubbing alcohol and peroxide on the bite marks and notified animal control personnel.
