A steer from a herd of cattle in Nobles County tested positive for rabies at the end of February. One month prior to the steer becoming ill and aggressive, a skunk was seen on the property. The herd veterinarian treated the ill steer before its death two days later. The veterinarian has been recommended to be given post-exposure prophylaxis shots.
Again, this is just another grim reminder of the presence of this deadly disease in our wildlife and how it spreads to our animals. Please protect your pets and your family by keeping your pets’ rabies vaccine current.
