Franklin Man Recovering After Being Attacked by a Rabid Bobcat That Was Hiding Beneath His Home

FRANKLIN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man is recovering after he was attacked by a rabid bobcat that was hiding in a crawl space beneath his home. Alex Fink tells KDKA-TV he was reaching into the crawl space outside his Jackson Township home when the animal attacked. He says the bobcat’s face was covered in porcupine quills. Fink’s arms, head and upper torso were scratched and bitten by the animal. Pennsylvania Game Commission officers put the bobcat down, and tests showed it was rabid.
