Yesterday, Animal Services was called to pick up a fox that was killed by a family dog. The owner handled the pet after the altercation, which resulted in potential exposure for him. The dog is current on its rabies vaccine.

Today the State Lab notified Animal Services that the fox tested positive for rabies. The victim was notified of the positive results, and the dog was given a rabies booster.

Animal Services will canvass the area to educate the public about the importance of keeping their pet’s rabies vaccine current.
