Police in Lakewood are investigating multiple incidents in which children were bitten by a fox.
Three incidents were reported in different areas around town.
The most recent incident occurred shortly after 7:00 PM this evening. Hatzolah responded to the scene, and found three patients.
None of the injuries are said to be serious, but the children are being taken to the hospital as a precaution.
In response to the incidents, TLS reached out to Lakewood Police Chief Greg Meyer for comment.
“There has been an uptick in fox sightings around town, and residents are urged to use caution,” Police Chief Greg Meyer told TLS. “If you spot a fox, call us and we will send animal control or Chaverim out to trap them, and relocate them to a zoo or the wild.”
“Additionally,” the Chief added, “if your child is bitten by a fox, be sure to immediately seek medical attention.”
