Seeking Rabies Information - I was bitten recently by a medium sized black dog near the corner of Las Brisas and the road to Las Tunas. I cannot locate an owner for this dog and have not seen the dog since. I was told a brown dog with white spots in the San Sabastian area was known to have killed a dog and observed to have rabies. There was a lighter colored dog with the black dog but it was dark and I did not get a good look at the companion dog. I am looking for information about animals thought to have rabies in the area. The Centro de Salud was not aware of any animals with rabies so I was not given the precautionary series of injections. Please contact me if you have any information that would be helpful. - Diane Phillips, di4worship [- at -] gmail.com, 612 178-0187
