Health Officials Seek J'm Man and Son for Rabies

The Health Ministry called, Sunday, on a man and his son from the Giv'at Massua neighborhood of Jerusalem to make contact with them, out of concern that they may have been in contact with a three-year-old mixed Golden retriever in the Ir Ganim neighborhood that was diagnosed with rabies last week.

It became apparent, Sunday, that the boy found a dog with a matching description during a bicycle tour of Ein Lavan. No sign of the disease showed up during a visit to a veterinarian two weeks ago.
