Fox found

Salem Township Constable Dan Valentine responded to Butcher Road west of Leetonia after receiving a call at 10:30 a.m. Sunday about this animal he identified as an Arctic silver fox found near the back porch of a home. Valentine was looking for help in finding the owner, noting the fox was likely someone’s pet since it wore a harness, and the owner, Carl Deffenbaugh, was found later in the day. Valentine said the fox ended up biting someone, and the county health department and local game warden will be following up.
