Gray fox tests positive for rabies in Portal area

Posted: Updated:

Another gray fox in the Portal area has tested positive for rabies, according to a notification from the USDA to the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office.

Additional testing is scheduled on other specimens this week, with testing and results being dependent on a non-government shut-down.

Wildlife and human interaction is expected to increase, due to the degree of drought in Southern Arizona.

The community is urged to vaccinate their animals and to not feed wildlife for your and the animal’s safety.
