DERRY, N.H. (CBS) – A fox that attacked a little girl this week in Derry, New Hampshire has tested positive for rabies.

The fox chased a nine-year-old boy on Wednesday, before attacking a five-year old girl on Thursday as she went down the slide at a playground.

Officers were able to track down the fox and kill it after the attack.

The fox was sent to a lab, where it tested positive for rabies.
