Rabies had been raised as an issue.  Therefore, I shared that a few years ago my husband was bitten by a rabid fox, but that he would have been the last person that would have wanted that fox to suffer or be in agony (in a trap).  The rest of the story is that my husband killed the animal humanely, sent it to the state lab to be tested, and yes, my husband had to have rabies shots.

We should be wary of people who attempt to mislead the commissioners and the public.  What is their agenda?  If we still have people in our midst who think it is ok to torture animals, it is probably too much to expect an honest discussion on this issue.

Anyone interested in the presentations made at the Feb. 4 meeting can order a copy of the transcript from the commissioners’ office.
