A rabid fox was killed by a Roane County resident on Aug. 30.
Bill Newman said he was at his home on Tucker Lane in East Roane County when he heard a noise out back.
“I walked out on my patio, and there was a fox about nose-to-nose with my black Lab,” he said. “I went back inside to get a rifle because it was very unusual.”
Newman said he called for the dog, Ebony, when he got back outside.
