An apparently rabid female wolf, which has not yet been caught, was reported Monday by the Health Ministry at Hof Golan near the Kinneret. It was large and light and dark brown in color.

Anyone who has been in direct contact with such an animal or any other wandering mammal since December 1 should contact the Tiberias District Health Office at 04-6710300 during office hours or at other times to the nearest district health office or hospital emergency room for possible anti-rabies vaccination. The ministry requested that visitors to the area be informed of the danger.
