Rabid beaver attacks 3 in Philadelphia

Pennsylvania wildlife officials say a rabid beaver attacked three people in Philadelphia.

The Game Commission reported Friday that an animal blamed for attacking a couple on Wednesday and a child on Thursday tested positive for rabies.

The attacks happened on or near Pennypack Creek in northeast Philadelphia. Authorities are warning people to be on the alert for animals acting unusually in the area.
