There's been another rabid raccoon found in Carteret County, the latest in Morehead City.
The Carteret County Health Department says the raccoon was killed last Friday by a dog. Its owner then called authorities who tested the raccoon and found it had rabies.
Fortunately, the dog was up to date on its rabies vaccine and the health department says it received a rabies booster right away.
It's the second case of confirmed rabies this year in Carteret County. Early last month a Newport homeowner shot a raccoon after it was staggering and howling its way into his garage.
