PRINCE'S BAY — The city's Department of Health warned Staten Island residents on Friday about a rabid cat that was found in Bloomingdale Park.

The Health Department tweeted out a notice on Friday about the rabid animal with safety tips on the diseases.

The rabid cat was found last week in the park, and was part of a group of up to eight felines, a spokesman for the Health Department said. Health Department workers are currently trying to locate them to safely remove and observe them.

The majority of rabies cases are found in wild animals like raccoons, bats, skunks and foxes, the Health Department said.
