Animal Services Traps Cats After Rabies Case

TAMPA, Fla. (970 WFLA/AP)- Animal services has been trapping cats in Hillsborough County after a rabies case as part of a quarantine effort.

The county's animal services began trapping cats in the neighborhood of Northday on Friday night.

County spokesman Willie Puz says that cats taken by animal services will be kept for an undetermined amount of time that could last weeks. Once the quarantine ends, animal services will try to reunite any non-stray cats with their owners.

A rabies case was reported last week in a cat that was tested.

Residents can also take trapped cats to a shelter.
