Fox-like animal attacks in Manassas

By Mike McPhate

Two people are getting rabies treatment after being bitten by a fox-like creature in Signal Hill Park, Manassas, according to a report by The News & Messenger.

The June 2 attacks by the gray-haired creature were unprovoked, the report said.

Health officials are advising residents who spot the animal to steer clear and call Manassas police at 703-361-1136.

Read the report.

Lets not beat around the bush. I think we all know what this "animal" really is. I believe it is none other than the chupacabra. It's about time that it has made its way up to our area. We must be vigilant against these pests by arming ourselves with shovels, daggers made of lead, and chili peppers. And remember, they are can sense fear and have a smell for blood.

Gray? Well, it could have been a gray fox...though they're apparently rare around here, and they have quite a bit of red on them too. It's possible it was a silver fox, though again, still somewhat rare. I'm wondering if it may have actually been an opposum, which are vicious even when they're not rabid.
