DARLINGTON - A Lafayette County Sheriff's deputy put down a raccoon believed to be rabid in South Wayne on Sunday. "We're not sure the animal was rabid, but it was acting very sick, so we dispatched it," said Lafayette County Sheriff Reg Gill on Tuesday. Gill said the animal was reportedly lying under a tree on East Grove Street in South Wayne, largely unmoving, for two days, leading the witness who reported the animal to assume the raccoon was rabid.
