Washington County officials have now confirmed a second local case of rabies. Following that news, officials are urging pet owners to have their animals vaccinated.
“The latest report was a case of a dog being bitten by a rabid skunk and passing the rabies on to the pet,” said Sharon Browning with the Washington County Environmental Services. “Apparently the skunk got into a fight with the dog. The skunk wasn't tested, but the dog died and tested positive for rabies.”
