Frederick County Dog Found To Have Rabies

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Frederick County health officials say a dog has been found to have rabies — the first such case in a county dog in 13 years.

Authorities said a stray pit bull-Chihuahua mix was sent for testing after it bit to adults in Ijamsville.

Officials say the dog was found on a farmette, and livestock there are under a six-month quarantine.

Residents are urged to get their pets vaccinated and to call Animal Control if they see an animal acting strangely.
