The tire biting raccoon and its deceased cohort from lower Rowels Run was not rabid, according to a report received by DNR conservation officer Tom Fox of Millstone. "This is good news," he said. "These two animals may be suffering from distemper or hepatitis." Calhoun vet Dan Cain processed the heads into Charleston.

The raccoon was shot after it was spotted by bus driver Bill Collins. He said the animal was agitated and falling down, besides attacking the bus tires.

Red flags are still up regarding rabies in the area after a fox head proved positive a short time ago.
