Sunday, March 8, 2015

HADDONFIELD, N.J. -- Health Department officials in Camden County are putting out an alert after another confirmed case of rabies.

Officials say a raccoon removed from a yard in Haddonfield has tested positive.

It was discovered by a local family last Sunday.

Their puppy has since been quarantined as a precaution.

Last month, a few other raccoons found in the City of Camden and in Haddon Township also tested positive for rabies.

Officials are urging neighbors to make sure all their pets are up-to-date on their vaccines and to avoid contact with wild animals as best as possible.
