This story is incomplete. What time did the attack take place? Was the dog tied, in a fenced area, running loose? Was the bobcat caught and necropsy done and analyzed for the presence of rabies? To say just that animals should be vaccinated against rabies is stating the obvious. What other precautions should people with children and animals take? What is the state doing to stop the spread of rabies? Why is there not a plan to use oral vaccination of wild species, as was done in the Eastern states in 1995?
