WARNER ROBINS, Ga. (AP) — Police in a central Georgia city are investigating fox bites that injured three people.

Warner Robins police said a female told officers she was in her backyard Thursday afternoon when a fox attacked her and bit her on the leg.

Later Thursday afternoon, police were called to another address in the city where a mother found a fox biting her child. Police say the mother, who was also bit, killed the fox with a piece of wood. Both were treated at the Medical Center of Central Georgia.

Police say they captured the fox at the second residence. It was being tested for possible rabies.

Police say they believe the same fox was involved in both attacks, but set up animal traps in the area as a precaution.
