This 4 year old was out walking with her family in MA when a fox ran up to her and grabbed her by the pants leg. The family Basset Hound and Pitbull chased away the fox and, typical for their breeds, the hound stayed on the fox’s trail while the Pitbull went back to check on the little girl. Nobody was injured in the attack. The fox reportedly tried to attack some other people as well and was acting strangely so police killed him.

Awww, that is such a sweet story!
I love too the expressions on these dogs. Like you do NOT want to mess with our little person.
Not only that, it’s like the Odd Couple. LOL
That is SO wonderful. Happy Thanksgiving, indeed! :)
Yay! We need more feel-good stories like this to remind people that kids and dogs and cats can be a wonderful (indeed, lifesaving) combination. And bonus points to the person who can correctly pronounce “Leicester” (the town where it happened). “Less-tah” separates the native Bay Staters from the newcomers!
What a great story – not that I like a child being attacked by a fox, but you know what I mean.
I love the dogs’ faces, too. Very serious and she’s just a cute little pixie.
