Animals in Wichita Falls Tested Positive for Rabies


Animal control officials say rabies have been found in two skunks in
Wichita Falls and residents need to be on high alert.

Getting bitten by a dog or other animals can put you at risk for rabies.

A city resident says he can attest to that after he was bitten by a dog while he was out for a jog.

"It hurt, but I didn't think it was that bad but then it continued running but then I realized very quickly that it was much deeper than I thought it was," said Patrick Scott.

If you're afraid you could have been exposed to the viral disease, experts recommend getting a rabies vaccine.

And if you see a wild or domestic animal that looks sick, fearless or aggressive.

You can report it to animal control by calling 761-7824.
