Possibly Rabid Calf Bites Human in Tiverton, RI

Bags Groove,flickr

The pasture next to Gray’s Ice Cream in nearby Tiverton, R.I. is a perfect setting for the kids to see the cows while licking down their home made treats. But there’s a potential problem if anyone touched a small calf there between July 5 through July 21. Health officials are trying to figure out if the calf, now dead, was rabid when it bit an individual recently.

Public health officials are asking if anyone came in contact with the saliva of this calf in the last few weeks to call 617-983-6800 in MA or 401-222-2577 in Rhode Island.
