[ARCHIVED] Positive Rabies Case Notification


 COMMUNITY ALERT: Positive Rabies Case in Lytle


For Release: Immediate Release 

Date: April 6, 2023


Lytle Animal Care & Control Officials were informed by the Department of Health that one (1) skunk located in the Houston Street area tested positive for the rabies virus. The skunk was tested after a citizen brought the skunk to Lytle Animal Care & Control on April 4, 2023, where one dog killed the skunk. The one dog was current on their rabies vaccination and will get a booster shot and will be quarantined. This stresses the importance of having all your pets vaccinated against the rabies virus.

According to the Department of Health, rabies is 100% preventable in human populations. The virus spreads when an infected animal bites a human, or less commonly when saliva from an infected animal gets into an open wound or onto a mucous membrane. While there is not a widespread problem or need for concern, the general public should take precautions and not approach any animal that is acting abnormally.

If a pet is suspected of exposure, please seek veterinary care immediately. If you see a skunk or other animal behaving abnormally, DO NOT go near it. Call Lytle Animal Care & Control (210) 500-1414 so the incident can be investigated.
