Rabid animals may not always exhibit symptoms. Some rabid animals may act mad or strange while others may act timid or shy. A wild animal with rabies may move slowly or act tame. Since a wild animal is not tame and usually run away from people, maintain your distance and do not approach them. Also, avoid petting stray cats or dogs.
The only way to know for sure if an animal or a person has rabies is through laboratory tests.
If you see an animal that is acting strange, call Randolph County Animal Control at 336-683-8235 for assistance.
