A bull in Weld County, Colo., tested positive for rabies, marking the fourth case of the deadly zoonotic virus in the state's livestock so far this year, according to assistant state veterinarian Nick Striegel. Three horses were also positive for rabies in the state this year. Animal health officials are urging livestock owners to watch for symptoms of rabies and discuss vaccination with their veterinarian. Pet owners are also being warned after eight people, including one veterinarian, were exposed to rabies after handling an infected kitten. All are undergoing prophylactic vaccinations.
