RALEIGH — A wild fox that attacked a 78-year-old man while he walked his dogs in Raleigh has tested positive for rabies, ABC affiliate WTVD reported.
Dick Claxon said the fox bit him on the leg.
Claxon has started post-exposure rabies treatments.
“Let me tell you, the first rabies shot they give you, they go in and give it to you right down in the bites. And that is ouchy,” he said.
Claxon is continuing with antibiotics and more shots.
