BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - The Palm Beach County Health Department says two more people have been bitten by an aggressive and possibly rabid otter trolling the Boca Raton area.
William Gibbons was bitten by the animal as he videotaped it floating in a canal behind his home. He has received six rabies shots and is scheduled to receive four more.
Two other people were bitten by an aggressive otter in the area earlier this month.
Authorities are continuing to search for the animal.
The Palm Beach County Animal Care Control and the Health Department say people in the West Boca Raton area near Yamato Road and State Road 441 should avoid contact with wildlife.
Anyone who sees an otter that appears sick or aggressive can report it to Animal Care and Control at 561-233-1200.
