What school authorities first thought was a rabid fox was removed from the grounds of Haw Creek Elementary School today by animal control authorities. The animal is now believed to have been affected by distemper. Take a look at the signs and symptoms of rabies and distemper within, and be ready to call animal control or police if you see an animal behaving strangely, say officials.
Buncombe County Department of Health officials have confirmed that a fox found dead in Black Mountain has tested positive for rabies. The dead fox was found in the area where a woman was bitten on Saturday. Rabies is easily transmitted among wild animals and unvaccinated pets, so the public has been alerted to watch for any wild animal that may be behaving strangely.
