Foxy Jogger

An Arizona woman was out for a jog when she encountered a fox. She claims it made eye contact with her and began approaching. "That's when I knew something was really wrong."

Michelle Felicetta tried to back-away, but the fox leapt and clamped-down on her arm. At first, she fought it but, realizing she needed the animal for testing, she grabbed it by the throat and jogged a mile to her car, where she managed to wrest its jaws apart and throw it in the trunk. The fox later bit an animal controls officer. Both will undergo a series of treatments.

Most animals will not approach or attack humans or larger animals; rabid animals will.
