In response to a woman being exposed to rabies after being bitten by a stray cat in Farmington, police in that town have begun patrolling in the Acorn Street area, picking up stray cats. Back on Aug. 21, the department investigated a report of a cat bite on Acorn Court. Upon testing the cat, it was determined the animal had rabies and information was passed along to the bitten resident so she could make arrangements for medical treatment. Animal Control Officer Kate Koval learned that numerous other cats were living in and around the victim's residence, and in a nearby garage they discovered at least six cats in various states of health. Those cats were captured and euthanized before being sent on to the state lab for testing. Police are working with the state Department of Health and Human Services to test any other animals found in the area and will use traps throughout the weekend to capture other strays.
