Two individuals and an animal exposed to rabies


The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control confirms two people and one pet were exposed to rabies. According to DHEC, a goat found near Millwee Creek and Blackman roads in Pendleton tested positive for rabies. DHEC says two people found the goat and may have been exposed. These two were referred to their health care providers, according to DHEC. Another goat was exposed and quarantined as required by South Carolina’s rabies control law, according to DHEC. DHEC says that on Tuesday, the goat with rabies was taken to a laboratory at the University of Georgia Hospital in Athens for testing. According to DHEC, the goat tested positive for rabies in the laboratory on Wednesday. “Keeping your pets and livestock up to date on their rabies vaccinations is a responsibility that comes with owning an animal,” said Terri McCollister, director of DHEC’s rabies program. “It’s one of the simplest and most effective ways to protect yourself, your family, pets and livestock from this deadly disease. It’s an investment worth making done to give you some peace of mind.” This goat is the sixth animal to test positive for rabies in Anderson County in 2023, according to DHEC. DHEC says if you think someone you know has come into contact with this goat or another potentially rabies animal, please call DHEC’s Anderson Public Health Office at 864-372-3270 during normal office hours. DHEC says normal business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
