Be careful in the Santa Catalina Mountains. Second fox attack reported.




A second person has been bitten by a fox in the Santa Catalina Mountains.

The 20-year old man was bitten Friday at the intersection of Lemon Rock
Lookout and Wilderness of the Rocks. He woke up to the fox sniffing his
sleeping bag, he then kicked the fox and was bitten.

He is being treated at a local hospital after being bitten by a gray fox, said
Mark Hart, public information officer for the Arizona Department of Game and Fish.

It's the same type of fox that bit another boy Thursday at Rose Canyon Lake
campground, which is about six miles from the other attack. Hart said officials
don't know whether the same animal bit both people, however it is uncommon
for fox to bite making it possible that this may be the same animal.

1. I used to go hiking all over those mountains

finger rock trail was my favorite...

Funny story... I was 18 and in good shape with my then B-I-L who was an in shape 30... we were making good time going up the trail early in the morning... about 10am... maybe 3/4 of the way to the top... we were huffing and puffing a little when this elderly couple (about 65 I think) passed us going down with absolutely no signs of even being winded... and told us that it was a glorious morning at the top and have a great day!

That just killed it for us.

2. That is odd that fox are biting people.

Flight is their usual defense not fight.
