A pregnant woman was watching over children playing in her backyard in Canton, Mass. when one of the children was attacked by a rabid fox. The woman rushed to the child’s aid, kicked the animal and called for her husband. The husband retrieved a gun and shot the fox three times, killing it.
The pregnant woman and the wounded child have undergone treatment for rabies and are recovering. (WFXT, Boston, Mass. 05/07/15)
