Nevada State Journal (Reno, Nevada) > 1954 > December > 5; BAKERSFIELD, CALIF. December 4. The first hydrophobia fatality in known history of Kern County was on record today with the death of Mrs. Hazel Alsup, 58, of Bakersfield. Mrs. Alsup died last night from the dread disease as a result of two bites suffered October 22, when she was attacked by a civit cat, a small type skunk, while on a camping trip in the Sugar Loaf Mountain area of Tulare County. Health authorities said she was treated with rabies shots shortly afterwards but they apparently were not effective.
Hazel Bell Trivett was born March 22, 1896 in Tennessee, but was taken at an early age by her parents, William Monroe and Tishia Sarah (Green) Trivett to Fremont County CO. before 1900, where she grew up. She was married (1) about 1917 to Ellsworth M. Nutt and had 3 sons, Arthur, Frank and Kenneth Nutt. Then on October 26, 1940 she was married to John Benton Alsup in Reno, NV.
