Two new rabies cases in Cumberland County


The first bat was picked up in the 7100 block of Riddle Road, off of Yarborough Road, in St. Pauls tested positive.

A second collected Melvin Place off of Rosehill Road was inconclusive - but is being treated as a positive case.

It's the third rabies case this year in a bat picked up from Melvin Place, an apartment complex with many children.

Health Director Buck Wilson advised parents that if their child may have had contact with a bat during the last couple of days to call (910) 433-3707 immediately.
