Irwin was found just after 11 p.m. Wednesday on S. Danebo Avenue near W. 11th Avenue.

In Oregon, bats are often associated with the rabies virus.
An infected fox is unusual, and the community should be aware of the possible danger, Davis said.
"Foxes have more access to humans," he said. "Whereas a bat is airborne and while they do rest and interact with humans in some way, a fox could potentially pose more of a risk being in the bushes."
