Atlantic County officials are warning the public of the third case of rabies found in Egg Harbor Township this year. On March 24 a property owner in the 4000 block of Ridge Avenue heard an animal in the back yard in the early morning hours. The owner observed the raccoon drinking from a water bowl and using a cat box located in the yard for use by two outdoor cats. The owner contacted the police and the animal control officer who promptly removed the raccoon and sent it to the state lab for testing where it was confirmed to have the viral disease on March 28.
