Rabies Alert in Cornwall
Cornwall Police are advising residents to stay away from wild animals. A raccoon and woodchuck in the Mountainville area have tested positive for rabies. If you are bitten or scratched by an animal, contact the Orange County Health Department 845-291-2332.
It’s not known if these animals have infected any others, but there is a chance that they have. If you see a wild animal acting strangely and you live in the Town of Cornwall, call the police at 845-534-8100.
Rabies is a fatal disease that can be transmitted to humans. I searched for video on the subject, but most of it was really gruesome. Thanks to the YouTube, I bring you this gem.
