Federal health officials have issued a public health warning against rabies after an Iraqi puppy with the disease arrived in the United States. The dog was part of a rescue operation to unite American soldiers with abandoned animals they adopted. Named Crusader, the puppy was among 24 dogs and two cats that arrived in Newark in June, The New York Times reported Friday. After falling ill, Crusader the pup was euthanized and a specimen from the dog was later diagnosed as exhibiting rabies. The federal Centers for Disease Control says the other animals shipped around the country were tracked down. They are being held for six months in quarantine. So far, none has become sick.
