2 raccoons with rabies found in NH town

HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say they've confirmed two cases of rabies in raccoons in the town of Hanover.

Hanover Police said they responded to complaints of "strange-acting" raccoons in town last week. In both instances, the raccoons had come in contact with domestic animals.

Police said the raccoons were destroyed and tested for rabies at the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services laboratory in Concord. It was determined that both raccoons had rabies.

Police are asking residents if they see any other "strange acting" wild or domestic animals in Hanover, to please call police for assistance.
