Granville County Animal Control reports a confirmed case of rabies. A cow has tested positive for the rabies virus near the intersection of Lee Yancey Road and Grassy Creek/Virgilina Road. Animal Control officers are posting notices on surrounding homes.
North Carolina law mandates that all dogs, cats and ferrets be vaccinated by four months of age (N.C. General Statute 130A-185). Although cow-to-cow transfer of rabies is very rare, vaccines are available for cows and should be administered by a licensed veterinarian.
