PHIPPSBURG, Maine — A man in Maine used the only tool he had to fend off a rabid fox as he was trying to start his car.
Jake Becwar left his home Tuesday morning to scrape ice off of his car in the driveway when he felt a tug on the ice scraper.
“I turned and looked and saw it was a fox and it was starting to come after me, and I started swinging,” Becwar said.
He managed to kick the fox and hit it with the ice scraper.
The fox had porcupine quills stuck in its mouth from a previous attack.
Animal control later found, captured and killed the animal.
