HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Hartford authorities are reminding residents to avoid wild animals after a stray cat in the city’s Blue Hills neighborhood tested positive for rabies.

Police said Saturday the cat was tested after biting two residents that were feeding the animal. Both residents received medical treatment.

Police are reminding residents to keep pets up-to-date on their vaccinations. They say a current rabies vaccine is an important buffer between wildlife rabies and human exposure.

Authorities say anyone who is bitten by a wild animal should wash the wound immediately with soap and water and seek medical attention.
