Three Gadsden County residents and one individual from Augusta, Ga. were exposed to a rabid raccoon last week. All tested positive and are now either in or about to begin treatment, according to Marlon Hunter, director of the Gadsden County Health Department. The name of the family was not released.
The affected family lives north of Quincy close to the Gadsden-Leon county line, near the Georgia border. Hunter said the animal was a family pet they had reared from birth. Family members noticed the animal acting odd during the Christmas holidays when he bit one family member.
