A rabies alert extended -- again -- for another 60 days in Southwest Miami-Dade after a third raccoon in Kendall tests positive. Rabid raccoons were found in May and June as well prompting the alert in the area bounded by Southwest 152nd Street to the North and Southwest 187th Street to the South between Southwest 117th and 137th Avenues.
