The Montana Department of Livestock has placed Missoula County under a rabies quarantine after an infected skunk bit a woman last Wednesday. It is the first time in nearly two decades that a case of terrestrial – non-bat – rabies has been found in the county. The quarantine was implemented on Sept. 14 and will last 60 days. All dogs, cats and ferrets must have current rabies vaccinations for a minimum of 28 days prior to travel outside the county.
