The Charlottesville Police Department and Animal Control is continuing to look for a wild fox seen behaving aggressively earlier this week in the area of First Street N, W. High Street and Harris Street. CPD has received additional reports of sightings of the fox, but no additional reports of any attacks.
Should anyone see a fox or any other animal acting suspiciously, they are asked to get to a safe location and contact CPD so the animal can be checked on. If this is an emergency situation or you have the animal in direct sight please use 911 to report the incident. If you are calling for informational purposes, please use the non-emergency number at the Emergency Communications Center (434-977-9041).
Do not approach or attempt to capture the fox yourself.
