RABIES EDUCATION

What is rabies and how do people get it?

Rabies is an infectious viral disease that affects the nervous system of humans and other mammals. People get rabies from the bite of an animal with rabies. Any wild mammals, including raccoons, skunks, foxes, coyotes or bats, can have rabies and transmit it to humans. It is also possible, but quite rare, for people to get rabies if infectious material from rabid animal, such as saliva, gets directly into the eyes, nose, mouth or a wound.

Bat-related risks

It is important to never handle bats. Many otherwise preventable rabies-related calls to South Salt Lake Animal Services have occurred after people have captured and handled bats. Please review rabies risks with your family and remember: never handle any animals that are unfamiliar to you—especially wild animals.
