ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Health officials said a fox found near the Biltmore Square Mall tested positive for rabies.

Buncombe County Department of Health urge people in the area to be on the lookout for other animals acting strangely because they could have come in contact with the fox.

Wild animals can transmit rabies easily amongst themselves and unvaccinated pets, health officials said.

If an animal is seen acting aggressive, stumbling or foaming at the mouth in the Biltmore Square area, you're asked to call the sheriff's office at 828-250-6670.
