NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- The fox that attacked a New Hartford man twice on Monday has tested positive for rabies.

Police say the man was attacked near his home on Pheasant Lane. When officers arrived, they say the fox tried to attack them as well. The rabid animal was killed after being shot several times.

The man was taken to the hospital and will be okay.

The Oneida County Health Department wants to remind everyone to stay away from wild animals if you see one while working in your yard. If you do see an animal that's not behaving normally, or appears to be sick, report it immediately.
