SOUTHBURY — The Town of Southbury has experienced an uptick in confirmed rabid wildlife.

Southbury Animal Control would like to remind pet owners to keep an eye on their pets and to be cautious of leaving pets unattended while outdoors.

This might be a good time to make sure that pets are up to date with their rabies vaccinations.

Some common symptoms of rabies can be unprovoked aggression, difficulty walking, and excess salivation.

If you or your pet have had contact with wildlife, call Southbury Animal Control and follow up with a healthcare provider and/or veterinarian.

For further questions, or to report wildlife contact with a human or pet, call Southbury Animal Control at 203-262-0613.
