Albany - - Georgia health officials are investigating possible human and animal exposures to a cow that tested positive for rabies.

A Hereford calf participated in the Georgia Junior Beef Futurity Show last month in Perry.

The cow was diagnosed with rabies. Now, health officials are trying to find anyone who may have come in contact with it.  

"We got word of it today. However, the calf actually became ill after the show within a couple of days and died and the animal was tested and the results came back from the test," says Public Health Director Dr. Jacqueline Grant.

Dr. Grant says if you happened to pet the animal or if it licked you, you should contact the Georgia Division of Public Health at 404-657-2588.

Rrabies can be fatal if untreated.
