A sixth case of rabies this year in St. Lawrence County was confirmed Wednesday.

A raccoon that fought with a dog in the town of Potsdam tested positive for the disease, Public Health Director Susan J. Hathaway said.

“With this kind of a start, we’re very concerned we’re going to have a very bad rabies season,” she said.

There was no human exposure with the latest case. The dog was up to date on shots, received a booster vaccination and was fine, Ms. Hathaway said.

Other rabies cases have been confirmed this year in Lisbon, DeKalb, Stockholm and Brasher.
