3 Rabies cases in North Baltimore

According to the Baltimore Sun, three rabid animals -- two cats and a fox -- have been found and killed in recent weeks.   According to ABC News, the cases and dates are:

June 5: A cat was found in the 300 block of Rossiter Avenue.  A resident thought the cat had been hit by a car and transported it to Falls Road Animal Hospital for emergency care.  The cat was then taken to a second animal hospital where it was euthanized and submitted to the state public health laboratory for rabies testing.
June 18: A cat was found lying in a yard in the unit block of Warrenton Road.  A resident took the cat to Falls Road Animal Hospital where it was euthanized and sent for rabies testing.
- June 25: A Baltimore City Animal Control Officer picked up a fox that was displaying neurological symptoms (unsteady and dragging itself) in the 1100 block of Bellemore Road.  The fox was euthanized at the city animal shelter and sent for rabies testing.

The Commissioner of Health calls the events "an opportunity to be educated."
