MACON, Ga. -- Two more cases of an often-deadly virus that attacks dogs have been reported at a Macon animal shelter, which had to shut down for a time in August after an earlier outbreak of the same virus.

Bibb County spokesman Kevin Barrere says two cases of parvo were reported Thursday.

Officially were awaiting an inspection from the Georgia Department of Agriculture before deciding a course of action, but the areas housing the infected animals will be closed and cleaned in the meantime.

Officials did not say if the infected dogs would be treated or euthanized.

In the August outbreak, veterinarians found that two animals picked up from the shelter had parvo. One of those dogs was treated, while the other was euthanized.
