The Fort Hood Veterinary Center was notified Friday that a young fox found in the vicinity of the LV Phantom area and building near Clarke Road tested positive for rabies.

It marked the third identified case at Fort Hood since May 12.

The first case involved a skunk that was sighted during daylight hours acting strangely in a motor pool. The second case involved a dark gray-and-white kitten that attacked a Fort Hood resident outside a home on Central Drive on May 16.
