Skunk Tests Positive For Rabies In Borger, Again
You know how they say history repeats itself. Unfortunately it has in Borger. A skunk has tested positive for rabies.
I had to do a double take when I saw the story from our friends at ABC7. It felt a bit like deja vu.
After a little digging, I came across the story from August of last year where a similar thing had happened. A skunk was tested, and came back positive.
It's also in a similar area. From the City of Borger/ Hutchinson County OEM Facebook page:
The impacted area includes Buena Vista and Fairlanes (west of the Nutrien property line to west City limits). According to Texas Health and Safety Code the impacted area will remain under quarantine for 180 days.
If you have pets in that area, you are urged to use caution and make sure vaccinations are up to date.
