Fox to be tested for rabies after attacks in E. Windsor

Same fox believed to have been involved in multiple attacks

EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) — Police in northern Connecticut have killed a fox that bit a woman from New York City, a school child, school staff members, and a dog. The animal will be tested for rabies.

Danielle Bopko of New York said she felt something bite her the moment she opened the door at her family’s house in East Windsor on Monday.

She was planning a celebratory breakfast after her boyfriend proposed to her. Instead, she went to the hospital.

Police believe it was the same fox officers killed at Broad Brook Elementary School about an hour and a half later.

It bit a second-grader on the playground and wounded two staff members.

Police say the four people were taken to a hospital.
