2 raccoons in St. Albans test positive for rabies

Posted: Updated:

ST. ALBANS, Vt. (AP) - Authorities in the Vermont city of St. Albans say they've found two raccoons that have tested positive for rabies.

The animals were tested over the weekend after police responded to two separate complaints of possible rabid raccoons on New Street and High Street.

Police Chief Gary Taylor is reminding people that even raccoons that appear to be healthy could be a source of exposure to rabies.

Taylor is asking residents if they see a raccoon in the area to please call the police department.
