STAMFORD, Conn. -- Stamford authorities killed a fox after it attacked a woman and chased another family on Thursday, according to the Stamford Advocate.

The woman was walking with her infant son on Country Club Road when the fox began chasing her. The woman was able to kick the fox away and hid in a FedEx truck. The woman sustained a bite or scrape to her ankle, but the child was not injured, the Stamford Advocate reported.

Another family on Country Club reported a fox chasing them moments later. Authorities blocked the road and were able to shoot and kill the animal, the Stamford Advocate said.
