Notice: Rabid Animal
The Animal Rescue League of Berks County was notified that a cat impounded in Birdsboro by ARL’s Department of Animal Protection tested positive for rabies.
The cat, a medium-sized short hair calico, was captured near the intersection of E Main Street and N Water Street after a call for assistance from the Birdsboro Police Department.
“We immediately responded to the patrol officer’s call and secured the cat,” said Sergeant Hayden Carroll from the ARL’s Department of Animal Protection. “At the moment, we know that this cat bit a resident, who was already notified and received proper treatment. If anyone else was bitten or scratched by an animal in this area they should seek medical attention immediately.”
