Last night was gruesome around here--5 dead 2 wounded. At about 4 am I heard birds screaming so I grabbed a dog and went running. There was one of my bantam hens running and being attacked by a cat??? It was growling like a tom cat in a fight and it ran when the dog came out. I could not tell for sure but there are feral cats and I never heard a raccon screeching. Any way I am concerned about rabies because unlike other attacks, this time no one was eaten, they were just slaughtered. If the chickens that survived were bitten--could they have rabies? Do I need a shot because I handled the carcasses?
