Hall records 42nd rabies case

POSTED: December 18, 2008 5:00 a.m.

On Wednesday, Gainesville-Hall County Animal Control reported the county’s 42nd rabies case of the year.

In a year with more reported cases of the disease than average, the most recent case stems from a confrontation Monday between a raccoon and a domesticated dog in North Hall, according to a news release.

The raccoon, which came into contact with the dog near Hopewell Church Road, tested positive for rabies at the Georgia Public Health Lab — Virology Section in Decatur.

Animal Control will conduct a door-to-door canvass in the area, and advise anyone who lives in the area and sees an animal acting abnormally to contact Animal Control at 770-531-8812.
