The second case of rabies has been confirmed in Onslow County this year, with three dogs taken into custody.

Animal control says a state lab confirmed the dogs came in contact with a rapid raccoon off of Pilchers Branch Road in the Sneads Ferry area.

The dogs exposed were taken by animal control because they were not up-to-date on their rabies shots.

In January another raccoon from the Richlands area that was killed by a dog also tested positive for rabies.

The county health department urges residents to keep their pets vaccinated and to keep children away from stray or wild animals.
