Resident Bitten By Rabid Skunk

September 17, 2012 by Special To The ...

Cheshire Animal control reports that an Oak Ave. resident was bitten by a skunk while inside her garage on Thursday Sept. 13. The skunk was dispatched by Cheshire Police and sent to the Connecticut Virology laboratory where it tested positive for the Rabies virus.
The resident is receiving post exposure rabies treatments.
In late August, another skunk tested positive for rabies after being killed by two dogs on Lancaster Way. The dogs were current on their rabies vaccinations.
Cheshire Police and Animal Control remind residents to make sure their pets are vaccinated against the rabies virus.
Residents are requested to contact Animal Control to report sightings of wild animals, such as skunks that are out during the day or appear sick.
