Rabies Discovered in Town
The Vermont Health Dept. discovered a case of rabies in a skunk during a routine surveillance operation in Roxbury. Rabies is a deadly viral disease of the brain that infects mammals, and is fatal to both animals and humans. In Vermont, rabies is most commonly found in wild animals such as skunks, raccoons, foxes, woodchucks and bats. The rabies virus is transmitted through direct contact with the infected animal through an open wound, usually a bite.
