Cat left at shelter had rabies, questions of exposure raised
BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) — The Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire says an injured cat left at their door had rabies and the organization is trying to find who else may’ve been exposed to the animal.
The league says the female gray tabby was left at the shelter in Bedford on March 9. The cat may have recently given birth to kittens. It was quarantined, but later died and tested positive for rabies.
State officials are investigating the potential for other animal or human exposure to the cat before it was dropped off at the shelter.
