JOHANNESBURG - Pet owners in the Emfuleni area have been encouraged to take their animals to be vaccinated for rabies.

The Gauteng Veterinary Service is hosting a free rabies vaccination drive until 4pm on Monday.

The measure comes after a rabid cat bit two people in that area.

It has since been euthanized.

Head of Veterinary Services in Gauteng Dr Malcolm de Bude says the public can go to the Noordvaal Community Hall on the R42 and the Emfuleni local municipal offices.
