Several dogs at an Ellijay, GA home were exposed to a raccoon that has now tested positive for rabies.

On Sunday, March 14, 2010, a dog brought a live raccoon into a residential yard located on Henry Evans Road off Clear Creek Road in Ellijay. The property owner's Pomeranian-mix adult female dog began to attack the raccoon and suffered minor injuries. During the attack, another Pomeranian-mix puppy female was bitten above the right eye. The owner of these two dogs killed the raccoon on-site.
