Animal experts discuss rabies in Brunswick
BRUNSWICK (WGME) -- The Brunswick Police Department's Animal Control Division hosted a forum on rabies Thursday night.
This forum came after several rabid animal attacks on people and pets.
In the last two months, there have been six incidents involving rabid or dangerous animals in Brunswick, two involving skunks and four involving foxes.
Brunswick animal control officers say the number of rabid animals isn't necessarily up, but how close together the incidents are happening has frightened the public.
Since June 13, the Brunswick Police Department has been flooded with calls to help answer questions and provide information.
Officials say they can't stress enough making sure your pet gets the rabies vaccination.
