During the day on Saturday May 25 Bethlehem Police Officers were called to the area Central Blvd and then Oak Hollow Apartments on a report of a fox that had attacked two people. After the first attack, officers were unsuccessful in destroying the fox. Officers were able to locate and destroy the animal after the second attack where it had bit a male who was out walking his dog as well as attacked a police vehicle.
