LIVINGSTON, N.J. (AP) - An 8-year-old was treated at a hospital after she was attacked by a fox in central New Jersey, police said.

The attack took place Wednesday afternoon outside the child’s home on Springbrook Road.

The girl was playing near a shed when the fox attacked, Detective Lt. Chris Reinhardt told NJ.com. She sustained “small puncture wounds” on her shins and foot, Reinhardt said.

A neighbor chased the animal away.

The girl was taken to St. Barnabas Medical Center.



Animal control officers were trying to locate the fox.
