Greenbrier County is getting federal help in an ongoing battle against rabies.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services has assigned a wildlife specialist to focus full time on rabies in the southeastern West Virginia county.

The contract with the USDA follows an outbreak of rabies last year in the central and eastern portions of the county.

A USDA official says Greenbrier County also will be part of a federal pilot project to distribute a more effective rabies vaccine in 2011.
