A raccoon collected from Patrician Terrace in Egg Harbor Township has tested positive for rabies, the eighth case of the year in Atlantic County and the fourth involving a raccoon. The homeowner contacted the Division of Public Health after finding a dead raccoon on its property on November 20. The raccoon was collected by animal control and sent to the state lab where it was confirmed positive on November 27. An investigation by the Division of Public Health identified a possible exposure with the homeowner’s dog who is current with its rabies vaccination. As a precautionary measure, the dog received a rabies booster and will be closely monitored for 45 days.
