HILLSVILLE — A 10-year-old boy has to be treated for rabies after being bitten by a rabid fox last Thursday.
Carroll County officials did not release the name of the child, but did confirm the incident at 546 Carrollwood Drive.
Reports say that at about 7:40 p.m., the boy saw the fox near the residence and went inside to tell adults there.
When the child went back outside, the fox lunged at him and bit him on the feet.
