Stray kitten tests positive for rabies in Cordele
A case of rabies has been confirmed in the City of Cordele.
The Cordele Police Department confirms that a stray kitten died suddenly and positively tested for rabies.
The Cordele Police Department and animal control want to remind everyone of the importance of getting your pets vaccinated every year for rabies because it is the law.
Sgt. Jeremy Taylor, with the Cordele Police Department, wants to remind people not to approach a stray animal. If citizens see strays, even baby animals, call The Cordele Police Department and let animal control pick them up.
Although some animals are less susceptible to rabies than others, none are naturally immune, even humans.
