Rabies confirmed in fox in Montague

Posted: Updated:

MONTAGUE, Mass. (AP) — The Montague Board of Health has issued a rabies warning for one section of town.

The Recorder of Greenfield reports that the board says there has been a confirmed case of rabies in a fox in the Millers Falls area.

Public Health Director Gina McNeely says animals travel widely and people throughout Franklin County should be aware of the situation.

The health department advises people to avoid contact with wild animals, whether alive or dead, and call the police department to dispatch animal control if they see an animal behaving strangely.

People who believe they have been exposed should seek immediate medical attention and pet vaccinations should be up to date.
