ROANOKE, Va. -- A toddler has rabies after she was bitten by a fox outside her daycare in Roanoke Thursday.

A photo shows the fox, which a HoneyTree daycare worker was able to pull off of the girl and corner until animal control officers arrived.

WDBJ reports the two-year-old girl is undergoing treatment and that family said doctors are confident she will be ok.

Children were kept inside as a precaution Friday at the daycare.
