ELKTON, Md. (AP) - Health officials in Cecil County say a cat that scratched a person in the area of Port Deposit has tested positive for rabies.
Health officials say the person was scratched Wednesday while trying to capture the cat. The cat was described as large and with black and white markings. It was euthanized after being captured.

This is the second case of a domestic animal in the Port Deposit area that has tested positive for rabies this year. Six cases of rabies were also found in wild animals in Cecil County, five raccoons and one skunk.
