Officials: Deer scavenger may risk rabies exposure



CLAVERACK, N.Y. (AP) -- Health officials in Columbia County say a person who picked up a deer shot by a homeowner may be at risk of rabies exposure.

Officials tell the Albany Times Union (http://bit.ly/1pE5Gz5 ) that a resident shot the deer Thursday on County Route 16 in Hollowville, 32 miles south of Albany. The animal had been disoriented, stumbling into trees and a fence, and state Department of Environmental Conservation officials were scheduled to pick up the carcass to test for rabies.

But when conservation officers arrived Friday, the dead deer was gone.

Health officials are concerned the deer may have been infected with rabies or another disease that could endanger anyone who had contact with the animal or its meat.
