BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A stray cat in Iberia Parish has tested positive for rabies.
Louisiana Agriculture Commissioner Mike Strain says one person has been exposed to the cat. The strain of rabies virus has not yet been determined following Friday's test.
The most common carriers of rabies are bats, raccoons and skunks. State law requires vaccinations for dogs, cats and ferrets.
