Rabies in The Colony

Five people in ‘The Colony’ are being treated for exposure to the deadly disease.  But the good news is that all of them are expected to be ok.  They were reportedly bitten by a family dog a few weeks ago.  Who is thought to have gotten the virus from a feral cat in the ‘The Colony’ which is along Lake Lewisville.  That dog has since been euthanized.  According to the Texas Department of Health, the last human to be infected with rabies was in 2009.
