Another Rabies Alert for Georgetown

From DC Department of Health via MPD:

“Recently, a lactating female raccoon was determined rabid on 34th and R St. NW and ten days later, a second lactating raccoon mother was found about 3 blocks from original sighting 10 days later. Lab results came today July 29. There is the possibility her young may be infected with the virus.

The main message here is prevention and caution on approaching any suspicious animals including loose cats and dogs. For the pet owners, allowing cats and dogs to run at large in the woods is risky due to possible exposure to Rabies and Lyme disease, both of which can be transmitted to humans.”
