Pike County Animal Control announced July 26 that a raccoon was confirmed as having rabies after a July 24 fight with dogs near the Wildwood Farms lake on Concord Road just before the intersection of Bottoms Road in Concord.

“The raccoon was taken by Animal Control officers to be prepared for rabies testing and turned over to the Health Department in Zebulon,” said Animal Control officer Scott Meyers. “On July 26, Animal Control received confirmation the raccoon tested positive for the rabies virus. Fortunately, the dogs that had interaction with the raccoon had already vaccinated and were immediately taken to receive a booster shot.
