Rabies in town

A case of rabies has been reported in Leon Valley. Watch out!

From KSAT-12:

SAN ANTONIO -- Pet owners in the San Antonio suburb are being warned to keep a close eye on their animals and watch for strange behavior after animal control officials found a rabid skunk.

The rabies scare began Thursday when a resident called Animal Control officials to report a skunk that was acting strange.

"We went to observe and noticed it was paralyzed and biting on itself," Animal Control officer Kendall Webster said. "We gathered it up and took it in for testing for rabies, and we found out yesterday it came back positive."

Just to remind you: If you ever see a wild animal acting strange, leave it alone. And then call Animal Control. It's not worth it to have to get a rabies treatment.

Plus, your little yellow dog may start 'acting strange' and you'll have to grab your shotgun... :)

PS-I hate when I have typos.

Poor Old Yeller! Just about every man I know who saw that movie as a boy admits to crying during the rabies scene.
