MECKLENBURG COUNTY, NC (WBTV) - A raccoon tested positive for rabies in the Mountain Island area this week.
CMPD Animal Care & Control says the raccoon was in the Marengo Circle area, where two domestic pets were exposed.
Both of the pets had current rabies vaccinations, CMPD Animal Care & Control says.
Animal Care & Control says they were told Monday that a rabies alert notification will be sent to the residents in the area.
"AC&C offers a free monthly clinic for Mecklenburg County residents to have their pets inoculated against rabies," Animal Care & Control says.
This clinic takes place the second Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the animal shelter on Byrum Drive.
