Lakewood, NJ - Police say a fox attacked a girl in Lakewood.

The four-year-old sustained scratches on her arm, leg and lip.

Police Lt. Steve Allaire tells the Asbury Park Press a man kicked the fox away and an officer was forced to shoot at the fox when it tried to attack him and an animal control officer Saturday.

The fox died at the scene and is being tested for rabies.

Nebech, sounds like this fox MIGHT have rabies since it was so bold.

Pirkei Avot 5:11
"Wild beasts come to the world for false oaths and the desecration of G-d's Name."

Why does the Holy One arouse His children to repent by means of punishment? There are two kinds of medicine, bitter and sweet. When you give a child sweet medicine, he likes it so much that he doesn't even realize he's sick. When the medicine is bitter, however, the patient knows he is ill. Unfortunately, sometimes only bitter medicine can awaken the Jewish people to repentance.

Do you? Rabies has a furious stage where the animals are extremely aggressive. The treatment is very painful. (Without treatment its deadly!)

The Mishna in Avot makes it clear who must make the first move to bring the redemption. Hashem has said to us "you are making vain oaths and making Chillul Hashem!" A wild animal does not make a move unless Hashem commands it! In the time of Rabbi Akivah a fox came out of the Kodosh Kodoshim and Rabbi Akivah recognized it as fulfillment of the words in Micah 3:12. A National Council should set the example to our young of Bnai Yisrael by fulfilling its oath and putting an end to the Chillul Hashem perpetrated under its banner.
