A third animal suspected of or confirmed as having been rabid was discovered in the Safed area and reported by the Health Ministry on Sunday. A medium-sized dead wolf colored brown-beige was found in the city's Rehov Hagedud Hashlishi. Anyone who was in touch with such an animal or others in the area is asked to immediately contact the Safed district health office at (04) 6994219 or any other such office. Last week, a jackal and a German Shepherd were diagnosed with the disease. Anyone who has been scratched or bitten by an animal should wash the wound immediately with running water and soap, disinfect it and go to the health authorities to determine whether he needs anti-rabies shots.
