PUEBLO — A group in Pueblo is warning people about rabies this time of year.

The CSU Extension Office has reported six cases of rabies so far this year in Pueblo County.

The office is asking people to be proactive this time of year, as we see most cases between May and August.

"Avoid wild animals because we never really know if they are rabid or not, other than they might be acting different. But who's to say what's different," Tom Laca with the CSU Extension Office said.

The Extension Office is also asking that everyone get their pets vaccinated.
