Coyote found near CJ tests positive for rabies ~ A coyote has become the 10th animal in Josephine County to test positive for rabies over the past 13 months.
The Mail Tribune reports the coyote was found in the Cave Junction area, where seven foxes and one goat have all died from the disease.
The other rabies victim was a fox near Merlin. The coyote has yet to be tested to determine whether it contracted the same strain of bat rabies found in the other dead animals.
But Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials say it's likely that other animals have contracted rabies in the Cave Junction area.
The agency says it will release a draft plan next week to track rabies in Josephine County and determine how widespread it has become.
