WOONSOCKET â€“ Animal control officials have been chasing after a sickly-looking fox for days, hoping to corral the furry four-legger before Autumnfest crowds begin pouring into World War II Park.
â€śThatâ€™s one of the areas it seems to be frequenting,â€ť said Animal Control Officer Doris Kay.
A policeman fired a .22-caliber rifle at the fox off Gaskill Street earlier this week and nicked the animal on the nose, but it escaped, she said.
