This is to advise that there was contact between a rabid raccoon and a dog recently in the 2900 block of Bridge Drive in Gainesville. Hall County Animal Control was advised Tuesday that the raccoon tested positive for rabies. This is the fifth confirmed case of rabies in 2018.
Although it was a dramatic event (due to a vehicle fire), there was
apparently no major injuries in the accident at Queen City Parkway and Ridge Road this morning. One person was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center with minor injuries.
