Raccoon that Tangled with Dogs was Rabid

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- A raccoon that attacked two dogs in suburban Richmond has tested positive for rabies.

Henrico County's animal protection unit said Monday the two dogs that ultimately killed the raccoon did not have a valid rabies vaccination. That means they are being quarantined for 45 days.

No humans or other animals were exposed to rabies as a result of the raccoon attack last week.
