Date:5/20/2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., May 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Department of Health today announced that a kitten found on a street in Adams County has tested positive for rabies, and department officials urged anyone who may have come into contact with the animal to call the local State Health Center.

The kitten was found on North Washington Street in Gettysburg and tested positive for rabies on May 19. The kitten was part of a litter of six.

Health Department officials advise anyone who may have come in contact with feral cats or kittens in this area of Gettysburg -- specifically behind the Agway and the Flower Boutique -- since mid-April, should call the Adams County State Health Center at (717) 334-2112 or the Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH.

Touching or handling a potentially rabid animal does not constitute exposure unless you have been bitten or scratched. Under these circumstances you should seek medical attention immediately.

For more information, call the PA Department of Health at 1-877-PA-HEALTH. General information on rabies along with other diseases and illnesses is available on the Health Department's web site at http://www.health.state.pa.us.
