This was not the fox involved in Saturday's attack. The particular species of fox that attacked the girl wasn't immediately known, and more information was expected to be released Monday.
The little girl had scratches on her arm, leg and lip after the attack Saturday afternoon in Lakewood, but was otherwise expected to be OK.
Police Lt. Steve Allaire said the girl's mother and another man kicked the fox away from her, and it ran under a deck.
The dead fox was being tested for rabies.
