Within a couple of hours Thursday afternoon, two people were bitten by a fox in Warner Robins.

13WMAZ talked to Patricia Douglas who says she was attacked by a grey fox.

Douglas said that it all happened while she was babysitting Samantha Driskell, her neighbor's child. They were sitting on her porch when she noticed the fox looking at them behind their fence.

She said it went away, but when they were going back inside, they saw the grey fox again, and this time, it had eyes on Samantha.

"He had an awful sound. It was kind of like he was growling and he had blood and saliva coming out of his mouth, and he was just running. He was not running, he was walking like something was wrong with him, and that's why I told her to run to the house because he didn't look right," said Douglas.

She said she told Samantha to run and the fox went after her, biting her on the finger, the leg, and upper thigh. She said she put the fox in a chokehold and managed to get the fox underneath a blue bin with the help of a neighbor, but the fox chewed through the plastic bin and escaped.

Douglas said she got shots for rabies at the Houston Medical Center.

Just two hours after Douglas was bitten, another woman beat a fox to death with a piece of wood as it was biting her child.

Police said they believe the same fox was involved in both cases and is being tested for rabies.

The two incidents happened on Ridgestone Drive and Tranquill Pointe. That neighborhood is located between Houston Lake and Feigin Mill Roads.
