Reporter/Mike Brown Rabies case reported in Milam

Milam County Sheriff David Greene is asking residents in the county to keep a close eye on pets and livestock. Greene learned this week from the Texas Health Department that a horse in the Davilla area was diagnosed with rabies.

So far authorities say there was only one person known to have been in contact with the animal.

Greene said that although the Sheriff`s office will document all reports of possible rabies cases, owners are responsible for having their pets and livestock vaccinated.
