Walmart Madness #106! Rabid Kittens Adopted At Walmart

"The Oklahoma State Department of Health issued a release Friday about the kittens, requesting those in contact with the adopted animals contact Epidemiologist-on-Call at (405) 271-4060 or (800) 234-5963.

According to the department, four kittens, around 9 weeks old with black and white markings, were put up for adoption on the Tahlequah Online Garage Sale Facebook page Oct. 1 and adopted at Tahlequah's Walmart parking lot.

Two days later, however, one of the kittens began showing signs consistent with rabies and was put down. Further testing confirmed the presence of rabies, the health department says.
