Rabies cases spike, sparking worried measures in Weld, Larimer


The last known human rabies fatality in Colorado was in August 1931, when a 62-year-old woman was bitten by a rabid dog. "It’s not that common," said Alex Turner, a veterinarian and co-owner of Mobile Veterinary Services, a clinic based out of Golden. "But if someone were to get bit and die — that death was entirely preventable."
