I saw the headline about a fox attacking a man who was eating in a restaurant late last night, but I have not been able to find the story. I think it must be regional. Has anyone else heard this story?

Nope, I have not heard anything like that on the news today. Even if it was local I think it sound so strange that it might go international. Was the man at an indoors restaurant?

I saw it on Yahoo! when I was signing out, teison, and I was tired and didn't want to sign back in to read the story. I think I will do a search on it though since I've put it up for discussion. Thanks for waking me up.

The incident took place in Salisbury Maryland, where steakhouse employees encountered it in the parking lot. When they ran back into the building the fox was able to slip through a slow closing door. He lunged at a waitress and bit her on the hand. A bouncer then tried to choke it but it succeeded in getting away. This happened on Thursday night. The fox was found later and put down on Friday according to Yahoo News.

I don't know if this is the same story....did a search and it seems that a fox did go into a restaurant, terrifying people of course, and it did bite a woman's hand...the "bouncer" was able to grab at the fox and started to choke it, but it ran off....doesn't have a happy ending, as you'll see in this article http://fe60.news.sp1.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070721/ap_on_fe_st/odd_fox_attack

Many stories don't make the headline news, gabs, so I get much of my news from the radio late night. I also scan a couple of good news sites maybe twice a day.

No, I haven't heard about this story. But that is very unusual behavior for any type of Fox, one would have to suspect it was rapid.

While searching for this story I discovered another fox attack on a man and his son and this one did result in a positive for rabies. I fear that animal attacks are going to get worse, Aurone.

I am afraid that I haven't heard anything about that I even tried to do a search but didn't find anything! If you have found a link could you please share - that would be an amazing story and one very brave fox! xxx
