(WICHITA, Kan.) — Irene Sellers has nothing to fear from her dogs.
"That was the first thing I had done when I got these two animals--I had them vaccinated," Sellers says.
She learned through family experience that rabies is nothing to take lightly.
"My mother had rabies shots," Sellers says. "She had 18 shots in her stomach."
In that case, it was a puppy. The most recent case in Kansas is a horse from the Leon area diagnosed by veterinarian Davy Harkins.
"The owner noticed the horse was wobbly out in the pasture, (she) went out to get it, (and) it bit her," Harkins says.
