Kernersville, NC-- Thursday night shoppers at a major department store had some wildlife that wanted to join them.
Kernersville police said they got a call around 6:20 pm from the Kohl's Department Store on Harmon Creek Road about a wild animal outside the store.
A responding officer said he saw a wild fox trying to go into the store through one of its main entrances. The fox was acting strangely and showed no fear of humans, he said.
It was believed that the animal was rabid because of its lack of fear of humans and behavior. The officer was able to get the fox into a wooded area away from the store where it was destroyed.
There were no reports that the fox came into contact with anyone while it was on the store's property.
