EAST WINDSOR, Conn. (AP) — Police say a fox believed to have bitten a New York City woman, a school child, school staff members and a dog has tested positive for rabies.
East Windsor Police Lt. Michael Poliquin said Tuesday the animal was destroyed and tests found it had 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.
