TRENTON, N.Y. – A horse in the town of Trenton tested positive for rabies last week, and eight people were exposed, according to the Oneida County Health Department.
The horse was sent to the Wadsworth Center in Albany for testing on Jan. 27, and the positive results came back the next day.
All of the people exposed to the horse received preventative treatment.
Health officials say rabid animals may act angry or shy, and drool or foam at the mouth. If you suspect an animal has rabies, stay away from it and call animal control.
