SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) _ Public health officials in Connecticut are urging anyone who may have handled an injured kitten at a recent Southbury tag sale to seek medical advice.
The Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Pomperaug Health District on Monday said that the black-and-white kitten with a damaged nose died on June 8 and tested positive for rabies on June 9.
Officials believe the four-to-five-week-old kitten was located near the Whiskers Pet Rescue Booth for much of the Southbury Town Wide
Tag Sale on June 3 at the Southbury Green.
The animal was first found near the Walmart store off Route 69 in Waterbury.
