The laws at the state of North Carolina requires that every dog or cat owi.er have them vaccinal- ‘ ed against this dreadful disease which Is deadly. As most people know there is no cure for Jlabies known to medical science once the disease is contracted. All dog or cat owners are urged not to sub ject their neighbor or themselves to this disease. While dogs are responsible for spreading 90 per cent of Rabies, oats, foxes and other warm blood ed animals spread tt also. Just .because it is now mainly in the state of Tennessee does not mean that it will not spread into North Carolina. It la a known fact that ' animals carying this virus laden , disease travel for miles. All per sons raving animals worth keep ing are urged to give them pro tection, to say nothing of the hu man lives that may be saved by ’ wibnal vaednated against Rabies. It s strongly advised that all ' dairymen and farmers with beef cattle or sheep have them vacci nated. The local Board of Health, the County Commissioners and the Local Health Department are cer tainly n!o4 trying to place a sense less and costly burden upon any one, much to the contrary, they are trying to help save lives of people and animals. This law will be followed up to see whether or not it has been complied with. One innoca’atlon of the Rabies serum will protect animals for 3 years. Anyone suspectng an ani mal has rabies should notify their Health Department at once. Any one bitten by a sickly animal should see their doctor at once and follow his advice to the letter.
