A Marble Falls resident is undergoing rabies post-exposure treatments after being bit by a fox Sept. 4 that came into her yard and attacked a three-month-old puppy, officials said. The fox tested positive for the rabies virus, which also prompted a public alert.

“She does have bites. It's considered an exposure,” Marble Falls Animal Control Officer Jacey Ferguson said.
