Bobcat That Attacked Mass. Family Tests Positive for Rabies

(NECN) - Brookfield Police say the bobcat that attacked a Mass. family has tested positive for rabies.

Roger Mundell Jr. went into his garage Sunday morning when the bobcat attacked him, sinking its teeth into his face.

The animal then ran out of the garage and bit Mundell's 15-year-old nephew on the arms and back. Mundell and his wife then pinned the wild cat to the ground, and shot it to death.

All three are being treated for rabies.
