LOWELL, Vt. (AP) - A cat has tested positive for rabies in Vermont after attacking four people and a dog.
Amy Dalpe said the cat bit her on her face, on her sides and on her arm after she called for it Tuesday when she arrived at the Coventry Landfill, where she cleans the offices. The cat also scratched her 14-year-old son and ripped his shorts before they could drive away with the cat giving chase to their pickup truck.
WCAX-TV reported that the cat struck again the next day, two miles up the road when it went after two men and a dog. Joe Cody told the station they were eventually able to hold down the cat with a shovel and kill it with a rifle.
