Hamden Animal Control is reminding people not to pet wild animals that could carry rabies.
This warning comes after a man told them he pet a sick fox to calm it down.
On Friday, an officer responded to Sherman Avenue where that fox was apparently spotted inside a warehouse.
The animal was found suffering from seizures.
It was euthanized and taken for laboratory testing.
Animal control advised that man to see a doctor right away.
