Fourth Rabies Case Has Been Reported In Niagara County
Yet another positive rabies case has been reported up in Niagara County, according to the County's Department of Health.
It came from a bat that was captured in Pendleton after it entered a residence.
“It is important to contact our Environmental Health office if a bat gets into your home to discuss if there is a reason to be concerned and to determine whether or not the bat should be submitted for testing,” said Associate Supervisory Sanitarian, Scott Ecker.
The third case happened last week in Ransomville.
With all the positive rabies tests in bats, the Niagara County Department of Health will be hosting a free rabies clinic next Saturday, September 14 at the Town of Lockport Highway Department at 6560 Dysinger Rd. from 2-4 p.m, according to WIVB.
