Rabies Cases In Beaufort County

Three recent cases of rabies have been confirmed in Beaufort County.

Three rabid raccoons and the three pets they attacked had to be put down, and animal control is asking pet owners to make sure your animals are protected.

Beaufort County Animal Control director Sandy Woolard says in the past week officers have been called to three cases where raccoons attacked pets in residential areas in Pinetown and Bath.

Two dogs and a cat were attacked and they weren't vaccinated, so they had to be euthanize. The raccoons were also put down.

Beaufort County Animal Control will hold a clinic at the True Value store parking lot on Highway 92 February 4th from 1:00- 2:30 pm and will vaccinate pets for just seven-dollars.
