Rabies in Central Maine 

There have been several cases of rabies reported in cats in Central Maine.

Two cats testsed positive last week.

A stray cat had to be put down in Greene after it attacked one person.

In Norridgewock, an un-vaccinated cat was also euthanized after it acted strangely and bit its owner.

Doctor Dora Ann Mills with the State Center for Disease Control says all pet owners should vaccinated their animals for rabies and stay away any dog or cat where you don’t know the status of their shots.

Any scratch or bite that exposes a person to an animal’s saliva could put that individual at risk for rabies.

A total of four cats have tested positive for rabies this year.
