HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — A Hagerstown man says he beat a fox to a death after it bit his wife and attacked the couple’s dog.

Terry Pike says he used a shotgun on Monday afternoon to beat the fox, which was removed by the Humane Society of Washington County and is now being tested for rabies.

Pike says the fox grabbed his small dog by its head and ears and bit his wife on her left leg. Melinda Pike has two puncture wounds and is also planning to get a series of rabies shots.

Sgt. Brian Albert of the Maryland Natural Resources Police says the results of the rabies test on the fox should come back in about a week.
