BREAKING: Wild Beast Caught Near White House – Over Nine People Are…

The fox that bit a U.S. Congressman and eight other people near the White House in Washington, D.C. Monday and Tuesday tested positive for rabies after it was humanely euthanized.

Rep. Ami Bera (D-CA) was bit by the fox while walking to the Capitol and began rabies postexposure prophylaxis (PEP) treatment on Tuesday.

The regimen involves a rabies immune globulin dose and four doses of subsequent vaccine, which prevent nearly all humans from getting rabies if they are exposed to it.

The fox that was captured was a female and had kits, which were also captured and are being tested. They will either go to a wildlife refuge center or be released back in the area they were captured.

Bera, who is a medical doctor, was back at work after the initial treatment and feels fine.
