An Arizona jogger had an unwelcome companion on a recent run - a fox, hanging on to her arm by its teeth.

The rabid animal had attacked her foot and then as she grabbed its neck, it bit her arm and would not let go.

She ran a mile to her car, where she managed to free herself, wrap the fox in a shirt and throw it in the boot.

It later bit an animal control officer and both jogger and vet received anti-rabies injections, and the fox was confirmed as carrying the disease. (BBC)

I know the fox in question and...

1.) She would never attack anyone without being provoked...


2.) She doesn't have rabies. (Sure, some of the fellas said she could get "rabid" in the foxhole, but when has that ever been a crime?)

I am furious at the media for being so bigoted against our species and one-sided in its coverage of this story!

, were's PETA when you really need them??? Where are all those nude celebrities that claim to love us??? WHERE ARE YOU NOW YOU UPRIGHT SCUM?!?!

Are you saying you want me to change my sign after all that work in Microsoft Paint!?!?

A rabid fox? Reminds you of some of your blog comments ... and some of your posts, for that matter.

Fox said...

Hey... I have some cousins over there near your Coosa Creek, so just keep it up buddy!

p.s. The Tide are going down on Saturday! Boo-ya!

I think the fox just thought she was hot, definitely one of family members (or MAYBE it was you!).

Fox said...

What is this!?!?

I make a plea for tenderness and compassion and all of you guys give me the third degree??? Is it because of the "upright" comment I made? That's it, isn't it?

Then Marilyn implies that I am some prowling womanizer. I mean, I'm into twin sisters, but who isn't? I know Bill R. is!

I came here to defend you, Fox, and this is what I find. And I'm not even clicking on those links*; knowing you, they could be a portal into a world of depravity and shame the likes of which I've never even imagined.

*Not until I get home, anyway.

Fox said...

No, Bill! No no no! They are totally clean links!

knowing you, they could be a portal into a world of depravity and shame the likes of which I've never even imagined.

GOOD GOD! What do you guys say about me behind my back?

bill r. said...

Okay, I clicked the links.

First link: Awwwwww!

Second link: Awwwwww!

That guy doesn't deserve them. I can tell that already.

Anyone who wants to operate a forklift is obligated to go through a short forklift training course. The quality of the spare parts you go for will determine the efficiency of your fork lift truck. This makes them ideal for carrying irregular shaped loads such as broken up concrete, elevating roof gravel, tearing off roof trash, moving large debris piles, and backfilling behind high walls. Also, the fact that you do not need to perform any maintenance on a rental forklift means you will be able to save a lot of time and money that you would not be able to if you had bought your own forklift.
