RABIES

Hey All  – this just phoned in: There was a 2.5 years old kid bitten in  North Granville over the weekend. A woman with a rottweiler is being sought – she’s not in (much)trouble but authorities need to know if the dog had his shots or the kid will get some.

Spread the word – call 361-7730 with  info.

Rabies concern

 

 

 

Granville animal control officer Ray Boyea is calling on the public to help out a recent dog bite victim.
Boyea reports a two-and-a-half-year-old male child from Hudson Falls was bitten by a Rottweiler while at a mud bogging event in North Granville near the Whitehall border Saturday evening.
The child required medical attention for the bite.
He faces being forced to undergo treatment for rabies if the owner of the Rottweiler is not located. Boyea said Washington County Public Health needs to verify the animal was vaccinated against rabies to spare the child the treatment.
Unfortunately the only description available is the dog owner/handler was a female.
Boyea said it was not clear if the woman walking the dog was young or old; attending the mud bogging event or walking along county Route 12 with the dog.
Anyone with information is asked to call either public health at 746-2400 or Boyea at 361-7730.
