Just last week health officials issued an alert after two more cases were discovered in Pittsylvania County. Rabies typically occurs in wild animals like raccoons, skunks, bats, and foxes, but experts warn that dogs, cats, and some farm animals are at risk if not vaccinated. Officials say if your pets or livestock are not protected; the time is now. A drive-through rabies vac-clinic is planned tomorrow in Campbell County… details at: www.co.campbell.va.us
