Rabies now found in a calf in central Minnesota

A calf in Sterns County (the Saint Cloud area) was diagnosed positive for rabies on October 10th, 2013 after showing signs of bellowing, being off feed and aggression.  The good news in this situation was that no people involved in the case were recommended to receive post exposure prophylaxis and the dog on the premises was vaccinated for rabies already.  A great example of how vaccinating your pets and taking precautions when working with animals showing unusual behavior such as aggression is very important for everyone’s safety.
