Fox euthanized after attack on 2 children in Derry park

A fox has been euthanized after the police said it attacked two children at a playground in Derry.

The police said the fox pushed one boy down and bit a 5-year-old girl on the ankle at Don Ball Park about 3 p.m. Thursday. Families were evacuated from the park and the fox was captured.

Authorities said the fox may have been rabid. It will be tested for rabies at a state laboratory, and the test will determine how the girl is treated for the ankle bite.
