A Derry, New Hampshire park has reopened after a fox attacked two children.

"It's kind of scary. My girlfriend called me earlier this morning telling me to be careful." said Nancy Harper, who came to park armed with spray and a snow brush.

A 5-year-old girl was going down the slide at the Derry playground when she was attacked by a fox Thursday afternoon.

"The child slid down this slide and when she got off this fox was right there and grabbed her by the ankle," Derry Police Capt. Vern Thomas said.

"A couple adults that were nearby came over and stomped on the animal to let go. It didn't initially let go but eventually was scared off," Thomas added.

A similar incident was reported Wednesday night.

Police aren't sure if the animal had rabies, but that's the thought because of its behavior.
