Aggressive fox killed by Forsyth County resident

By Derreck Booth Anchor/reporter
CUMMING - That aggressive fox that went after a groundskeeper at The Hampton's subdivision in Forsyth County is dead.

The county animal control unit had been searching for the animal. The fox didn't bite the man, but did bite two dogs near The Hampton's club house on Tuesday.

County authorities got word Friday that a citizen of the same subdivision killed the fox. It had attempted to attack his dogs.

"Because the fox was disposed of before we were ever notified, it was not tested to see why it was acting aggressive," Lt. David Waters of the Special Services Section said.

"We are still warning people to contact us immediately if they observe or come in contact with any wildlife that may be acting aggressive or does not flee from humans," added Lt. Waters.
