Maine Woman Wrestles Attack Fox, Puts It Into Scalding Pot: A Sly Move

A sly move: Woman wrestles attacking fox into scalding pot, April 24, 2020 GMT

GRAY, Maine (AP) ó A fox that was attacking a Maine woman quickly found its goose was cooked when she wrestled into a pot meant for scalding chickens.

Eliza Ruth Watson, 37, of Gray, tried to scare the fox away while she was gardening Thursday. Instead, the animal ran toward her, the Sun Journal reported.

The fox bit Watsonís hand, and she grabbed it by the neck to keep it from biting her again. After a struggle, she found a pot used to scald birds for plucking, shoved the fox in and closed the lid. She then called 911.

An ambulance took Watson to a hospital, where her cuts were cleaned and she was given the rabies vaccine as a precaution.

Game wardens later trapped the fox. Its remains are being tested for rabies.

5. What kind of bionic fox was that?

She threw the fox into scalding water and closed the lid and later game wardens trapped it??? As someone said dayum.

Or maybe they removed it from the pot.

Either way it must have been harrowing.
