the robin which had provoked the emotion at the American Capitol, attacked several Passersing and even misleading an elected before being euthanized had rabies, the Washington health authorities announced Wednesday.

The Goupil, a fine white and red muzzle, had been caught in the green spaces of the Congress Hill, where the Senate and the House of Representatives are located on the end of the afternoon, after having bit 9 people.

The health authorities of the US capital had indicated Wednesday to have "euthanasied with humanity" the vixen, an adult female, so that rabies screening tests are made.

A few hours later, they announced that the animal had been "positive tested with the rage virus". The health authorities "are contacting all the people who have been bitten by the fox", they specify.

The presence of this animal, a few steps from the temple of American democracy, had been welcomed with a lot of humor on social networks, including a Twitter account pretending to be vixen.

"disappeared but not forgotten", has tweeted the account Capitolfox after the announcement of the death of the vixen.
