Fox Runs Ahead of Car at Speed of 35 Miles
December 25, 1922 Home Edition
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Dec. 25.—A little red fox living in a burrow somewhere in western New York has Man o' War and Morvich backed off the map for speed, according to John M. Ohmslead of Honeoye Falls.
When Ohmslead arrived in this city yesterday afternoon he said a red fox leaped a fence along the highway about five miles from his home and ran ahead of his car. The speedometer registered thirty-five miles an hour for about five miles. Ohmslead says the animal paced the machine, never slackening speed.
A broken chain rattling against a mudguard frightened the fox away.
