As a Macon man recovers from a rabid dog attack, Warren County Animal Control is urging area pet owners to get their animals vaccinated.

[The 56-year-old man], was attacked by 3 dogs on [1 Jul 2015]. He had finished walking his puppy and left the dog on the screened front porch, only to hear a commotion outside a few minutes later and find 3 dogs had come on to the porch. “I opened the door and hollered, ‘Get out of here.’ The one that was right there, he just latched onto my leg,” [the man] said [Fri 10 Jul 2015]. “I grabbed him by his face and hit him, and he yelped and ran off the porch.”
