According to WILX, Oakland County health officials have found the carcass of a sunk in Southfield Michigan that tested positive for rabies.

Officials are saying that a lot of skunk carcasses have been found in the same general of skunk carcass with rabies; however, officials did not test those carcasses for rabies.

Officials are asking people to stay away from animals like skunks, stray cats and dogs, raccoons and other wild animals at this time.

Another previous case of rabies in a skunk had been confirmed back in March of this year in Rochester Hills.

Rabies can be fatal in humans if not treated early on with a vaccine.
