Let the call of the wild go unanswered

Written by Healthy Living

The Florida Department of Health in Lake County issued an alert to encourage residents to avoid any contact with wild or stray animals. There is always a risk of exposure to rabies. In Florida, raccoons, bats, foxes and unvaccinated cats are the animals diagnosed with rabies most often. “Rabies is a potentially fatal disease,” Aaron Kissler, administrator of FDOH in Lake County, says in a press release. “It is important not to handle wild animals, to be aware of unusual acting animals and to keep pets vaccinated against rabies.” For more information and tips about this alert, see floridahealth.gov.
