You probably saw the viral video on the internet this week, but we just got confirmation from official sources... the otter that attacked a woman on Rockland beach tested positive for rabies.

The otter attack follows an incident with a 95-year-old man in Brunswick involving a rabid fox and a two-by-four.

Maine state health officials are warning that if you encounter an animal that isn't behaving normally, do not approach it, and call animal control.
