A jogger in Arizona was attacked by a rabid fox, and instead of saying, “Ahhh! Shiiiiit!” and trying to kill the fox or run away, she ran over a mile with its jaws clamped on her arm.

[T]he woman told deputies she was on a trail near Prescott on Monday when the fox attacked and bit her foot. She said she grabbed the fox by the neck when it went for her leg but it bit her arm.

The woman wanted the animal tested for rabies so she ran a mile to her car with the fox still biting her arm, then pried it off and tossed it in her trunk and drove to the Prescott hospital.

True story: a Marine friend of mine went running in the Mojave outside Twentynine Palms, and he was attacked by two wild dogs.  Not some pussy little fox.  Two wild dogs that coordinated attacks while he ran through the sand back to his house almost two miles away.  His arms, legs, and ass were torn to pieces, and he had to get dozens of shots afterwards.  Later, when he told the police his story, the deputy actually said, “Well, what were you doin’ runnin’ out there?”  Somewhat insensitive, but not unfair.

And you know why THAT wasn’t in the news?  Liberal news media ignores the troops.

(Thanks to Nick at Celebslam for the tip, although I should point out that The Sporting Blog has also written about this, or else Chris Mottram will send me an email bitching and crying for a link.  So there ya go, Chris.)
