Atl. Co. Confirms 2013's first case of Rabies

Posted: Updated:


Atlantic County has confirmed its first case of Rabies for the year.

The county's Division of Public Health says a raccoon found on the 100 Block of Cedar Avenue  in Buena Vista Township tested positive for the disease.

The raccoon was discovered after it got into an altercation with a resident's dog.

The dog was not current with its rabies vaccinations, so the owner must now decide whether to place the dog under a six– month strict confinement or have the dog euthanized.

The Atlantic County Animal Shelter offers a free Rabies Vaccination Clinic to residents each month.

The next clinic will be held in Pleasantville on Sunday, March 24th.
