Rabid Raccoon Killed in College Point East of Lynn Haven

Other areas with confirmed rabid animals so far this year include the City of Parker at north 9th Street and Lake Drive, the east end of the Laguna Beach area of Panama City Beach, and Southport off Highway 2302.

The Florida Department of Health in Bay County is reminding dog and cat owners that Florida law requires all dogs and cats over four months of age be currently vaccinated for rabies by a licensed veterinarian.

Most laboratory confirmed rabid raccoons are killed by dogs and domestic cats are the animal third most likely to test positive for rabies for in our area. An unvaccinated pet increases your family’s risk for exposure to this deadly disease.
