Florida public health officials have confirmed Jackson County’s second case of rabies for 2007.
A raccoon was killed Monday after fighting with a dog on Scott Church Road, south of Marianna.
The animal tested positive for rabies and the dog has been quarantined to prevent further possible spread of the disease.
Public health officials say all dogs and cats must be vaccinated by law and any suspected contact with a rabid animal by humans or pets should be reported.
