Area Woman Mauled by Small Furry Creature

The Carolina fox jihad continues:

Dorothy Holland said Friday that she was planting flowers barefoot in the back yard of her Holly Springs home when the animal attacked her for what she thought was about five to 10 minutes.

A neighbor responding to her screams for help managed to scare the fox behind a building, where another neighbor shot it twice.

"I thought I was going to die," Holland said. "I thought this was my last day."

Holland suffered numerous wounds to her feet and has a serious infection in her left foot that has her hospitalized at WakeMed in Cary.

She said she believes she wouldn't have survived had it not been for her neighbors.

Hey... Talon Thomas can't be everywhere.

Well, if Talon Thomas couldn't be there, he should have sent his assistants, Jack Bauer and Chuck Norris.

Kinda funny, having 2 120 lb domestic wolves, the foxes and coyotes stay away from my property.Now the kids in the neighborhood have a different opinion.Bear(my 10 yr old male) is like the good pied piper, he knows every kid and dog within 2 miles of the house and they all come out to greet him on our nightly walk. If you haven't seen a big wolf surrounded by 4-6 little kids, pullin' on his ears,tail and kissin' his face, you haven't lived.

I am afraid Carolina has a serious rabies problem.

So it's true - Fox is rabidly right-wing.

I've seen them in my back yard area (it abuts the Neuse River in Raleigh), and actually used to have one sleeping on a beach towel on my back deck.

Jebus. Do I have to use a "sarcasm tag" every time I write something? What a bunch of dimwits. No, no. J/K ;)

She should die from embarrassment. A sad world we live in when an adult is not capable of fighting off a mean old fox. If the critter has been any larger she would have died for sure. Pitiful.
