FL Dept. of Health at Escambia Co


Escambia County health officials are out with a rabies advisory for the West Pensacola area, after a raccoon tested positive for the disease last weekend.

“There was a scuffle between a raccoon and a couple of domestic dogs; and when the raccoon — who died during the scuffle — was tested [it] was found to be positive for rabies,” said Dr. John Lanza, Director of the Florida Department of Health in Escambia County.
