Warren County Health officials want to speak with a woman who dropped off a raccoon last Friday morning (11/29) at the Warren Animal Hospital.

The raccoon tested positive for rabies. Unfortunately, the woman left no contact information and officials have stated that it is urgent that they speak with her. She’s urged to contact the county health department at 908-475-7960 during normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

Depending on how the woman handled the animal and her interaction with it, she may have exposed herself to the disease. Rabies can be transmitted in the saliva of an infected animal through a bite or possibly open cuts, officials said.

If you know this unidentified woman or can spread the word, please do so and urge that she reach out to Warren County Health officials as soon as possible.
