Raccoon In Maddock Bar Incident Tests Negative For Rabies

(Maddock, ND) — The raccoon involved in an incident at a bar in Maddock tests negative for rabies. Erin Christensen is facing criminal charges after bringing the animal with her to the bar last week, potentially exposing other patrons to rabies and leading to a statewide warning. She told authorities she and her family discovered the raccoon they named Rocky by the side of the road a few months ago and took it in, with plans to later release it back into the wild. According to the health department, the raccoon was later euthanized, and it was determined that it didn’t have the disease.
