Last Thursday afternoon (Aug. 22nd) Gaston County Police Animal Control received a call from the Alexis-High Shoals Road where a fox was rolling around in the back yard of a residencenear Ballard Road.  That's in the same area where a man was bit on the leg by a rabid fox on Sunday August 18th.  That fox was captured and confirmed to have rabies.  In this latest Alexis area incident, there was no exposure to animals or persons.

On Sunday morning (August 25th) the Animal Care and Enforcement unit received a call from the 100 block of Carrie Elizabeth Court in Gastonia. There, two family dogs fought with a raccoon and killed the animal which also tested positive for rabies.

The family animals in Gastonia were current on their rabies vaccinations and the family was directed to visit a veterinarian to receive a rabies vaccination booster.

North Carolina law requires rabies vaccinations for all dogs, cats & ferrets four months old or older.  

Lincoln County has had four confirmed rabies cases in wild animals this year; Catawba County has had five; Cleveland County has had one.
