Norway has banned pet puppies and kittens from The Netherlands from entering the country after it reported two rare rabies cases.
"The Netherlands has lost its status as a rabies-free country," the country's Food Safety Authority has ruled. "To prevent any infection in Norway, it is now prohibited to import unvaccinated puppies and kittens under 3 months old." 
 
Two puppies from Bulgaria, imported into The Netherlands on 5 October, were diagnosed with rabies and then killed on 18 October.
