Leon County Animal Control officers are continuing their efforts to trap rabid foxes, this after two residents of FSU's Alumni Village were treated for rabies after being bitten by gray foxes.
Animal Control officials say it is not unusual to see wildlife in Tallahassee. However, they warn people to use caution when the animal is aggressive and approaches you.
Richard Ziegler, the director of Leon County Animal Control, wants to remind people to make sure their pets have been vaccinated for rabies. He says through biting, scratching or mucus transfer your pet and potentially you could get infected with the deadly disease.
