::Rabid Raccoon Found In Garner Area

From Raleigh Chronicle Staff Reports
Tuesday, July 17, 2007

GARNER - Wake County health officials are warning Garner residents about a potential rabies problem in the vicinity of Rand Road between Ten-Ten Road and Route 50.

Wake officials said that a case of rabies was confirmed yesterday in a wild raccoon that had come into contact with two pet dogs.

Officials say that fortunately the two dogs had been vaccinated for rabies and they only required a rabies booster.

Without proof of rabies shots, the dogs would have been required to be euthanized or quarantined for six months, says the county.

"We don't want to alarm residents in Garner, but they should be aware of this case and of the potential for exposure to themselves, family members and their pets," said Gibbie Harris, Wake County Community Health director in a statement to the media.

"Anyone living in or visiting the area, who has been scratched or bitten by an animal they do not know, should call our clinic. Our nurses will be able to assess if they need to seek medical treatment," director Harris added.

The Wake County health department sais that whenever people are bitten or scratched by an unknown animal, they should thoroughly clean the wound with soap and warm water.

Afterwards, they should also contact their physician or Wake County Community Health immediately. The daytime phone number for Wake County Community Health is 919-250-4462.  The after-hours number is 919-839-3059.

In addition, Wake County Animal Control officials urge residents to take the following cautions in order to avoid getting rabies:

--Residents should not approach wildlife, especially during the daytime

--Residents should ensure their pet has a current rabies vaccination. If a pet is allowed outside, a booster vaccine is recommended. Outdoor pets should be kept inside until they receive booster vaccines

--Do not leave trash or food outside unless in a trash can with a tight-fitting lid since it may attract raccoons.  If a pet is fed outside, do not leave food out overnight.

--Do not leave pets outdoors unattended.

--If your pet comes in contact with an animal that might be rabid, contact your veterinarian immediately

"In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of animals found to have rabies in North Carolina...current vaccination of cats and dogs provides significant protection for humans from this fatal disease," said Andre Pierce, director of Environmental Health and Safety for Wake County in a statement to the media.

In Wake County outside of Cary, Garner, Holly Springs and Raleigh, call 919-212-PETS (7387) to report stray animals to animal control.  Other area numbers include:
---Cary at 919-319-4517
---Garner at 919-772-8896
---Holly Springs at 919-557-9111
---Raleigh at 919-831-6311.  ::
