ALARMING OUTBREAK OF RABIES, At the Taunton Police Court, on Saturday, the super- tntendent made an alarming statement. Some time ago a mad dog was seen on the Wellington Road, where it bit another dog, and then disappeared. It afterwards made its appearance at Holloway, where it attacked a number of pigs, one of which had since died from hydrophobic madness. It then made its way to Stoke St. Mary, where it seriously bit a child, and then attacked a child belonging to Major Patton one of the magistrates of the division. The child bitten at this place was taken to an apothecary to have the wound cauterised, and it was then found that a woman and child had been to receive treatment for wounds inflicted by the same animal. The super- intendent stated that undoubtedly many dogehad been bitten by this dog and that the bitten dogs w¡¡ still atlarge,and he wished the instructioua Othe Bench with regard to this serious matter. %'he Bench found that where a dog was declared in evidence to be at large to the danger of the public the magistrates had p power to order it to be shut up, and in default that, to be shot. In this case, however, they caused a private request to be sent to the owners of the bitten dogs to destroy them.
