There's been another case of rabies found in Eastern Carolina.
Hyde County officials say they now have a confirmed case of rabies involving a raccoon.
The county health director says the raccoon attacked a North Lake Road resident's three Labrador dogs on Friday. The resident killed the raccoon and its remains were sent Monday to a state lab for testing. Those results came back Tuesday.
The health department says animals should always be current on their rabies shots, while if people are bitten by a wild or stray animal they should contact a physician immediately.
