Rabies, a horrible and infectious disease is reported as being present in Delaware County.
State Rabies Laboratory testing has found that a raccoon in the Town of Sidney and a skunk in the Town of Hamden were both positive for the virus.
In fact, that brings it to a total of three animals that have tested positive for rabies in Delaware County this year.
Once infected with rabies, there is a 100 percent fatality rate in mammals, including us humans, when left untreated. If you know someone who has been affected in Sidney, tell them to go to the local clinics for available vaccinations.
