Crow's Mouth (miscellanous news)

Crow’s Mouth

Cases of rabies spreading like wildfire among animals in the city- but it’s not what you think
Imagine the surprise of taking an ailing pet to the healer’s and being told that it has rabies. That’s what Nedixe ul-Avat and several others have experienced this week. It came out of the blue, said Nedixe in an exclusive interview with Crow’s Mouth on Wednesday, “Sarnunigi is quite docile. He was just a bit warmer than normal, had been acting sleepier than usual, so I assumed he had a cold. I never would have thought it was rabies.” According to healer Mariya ul-Marthenat, head of the small clinic Suspatelond, there were no symptoms of the animal actually *having* rabies. “No aggression, no outbursts, and he’s drinking fine- just like all the others. We’re lucky that we have a specialist on board, otherwise I’m not sure we would have had any idea.” In total, 20 pets so far have been diagnosed with what is being called “quiet rabies”. None of them have any symptoms aside from drowsiness and increased body-heat. While this curious plague of the furry kind seems quite innocuous so far, officials are urging people to keep their pets locked up and their children away from the streets. “Rabies is nothing to laugh about, even if it is this quiet kind.” Resate Arankash, toxin specialist at Suspatelond warned. “It spreads almost uncontrollably, and without proper treatment in the early stages, there is little that can be done for it.”

Plundering of local crypts has died back
The recent rash of grave robberies in Arangoth seems to have come to an end thanks to the diligent efforts of night-walking mages and concerned citizens. A total of 18 lots had been disturbed, usually minor vandalisms like shifting a door of a crypt or disturbing the soil atop a grave. No serious damage was done during these mysterious nighttime goings-on, for which the writer is quite thankful.

Disappearances in the Wharf District
A few individuals have gone missing in the Wharf district. While this is not anything unusual (the Wharf District is a place famous for the hands-off nature of governance, after all), some citizens have raised concerns. A total of six children and four adults have turned up missing over the last three weeks. Said resident Gabar As’inar of one of the missing, “Gabriel is a good kid, he wouldn’t just run away like that. He might have had a drug problem, but that don’t mean he forgets to come back where he’s safe at night.”
