A raccoon that was feared to have rabies tested negative for the disease, according to a spokesperson at the LaRue County Health Department.
A Hodgenville man began rabies shots last week after he was bitten by the animal. He was keeping the raccoon in his apartment, according to police. The raccoon was found dead in its cage after being quarantined last week. Its head was sent to a Frankfort lab for testing.
Sherry Grimes said preliminary tests received Monday show the animal did not die of rabies.
