TOPSHAM (WGME) -- The Maine Warden Service says a possibly rabid fox attacked a worker in Topsham Tuesday morning.

Wardens say the fox bit Mark Sleeper on his arm, and then attacked again before running away.

The incident happened at Grimmel Industries.

John MacDonald with the Maine Warden Service says a fox was struck and killed by a vehicle on the Grimmel property later that day.

MacDonald says the fox was taken to a lab for testing.

Sleeper, who's from Wiscasset, is being treated for rabies as a precaution.
