Last week, a fox found three students at the back of Molecular Science and Engineering (MOSE) Building near Georgia Tech Track and Field facility. Two were injured during the encounter, officials told a news release.
At the end of the week, other students have a similar run-in with another fox in the same area. That wolf was missed and campus officials believed that there might be some others and everyone could carry rabies.
Abel Lewal immediately found a new route to get to the class when he learned that a rabid fox was attacking the students.
"A friend of mine in my research group said he saw one of the foxes around here so I decided to take the long way so that we would not be accosted by any fox is over here," said by Lewal.
In the press release, officials point out finding medical treatment to anyone who may encounter a potential avian animal:
"It is important to seek medical treatment after an encounter with a potent rabid animal is uncertain and may include fever, headache, and fatigue.Even if the virus is not treated can cause swallowing, paralysis, and even death. These symptoms are can not or can only occur in the last stages of the disease. " Injured students are still considered.
Alert potentially dangerous foxes on campus. We are asking our community to avoid the area behind the MOSE building, the nearby road, and the Georgia Tech track facility.
