Prince George’s County health officials say they are looking for anyone who may have come in contact with a calf at an educational center that has tested positive for rabies.

The calf was kept at the Hard Bargain Farm Environmental Center, which runs educational programs for elementary and middle school students. County officials say students and visitors who may have been exposed since Dec. 21 should call 240/508-5774.

Katherine Feldman, a veterinarian with the state health department, says rabies is spread through the saliva of infected animals and anyone who was exposed may need treatment. Ms. Feldman says rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system.
