Acceptable Behavior Around Wildlife When Outdoors
There is no better time than now to start changing the way we interact and observe the behavior of wildlife in the Milwaukee area. In recent times, there have been a number of reports about rabid animals, which highlights the increased importance of familiarizing ourselves with this virus. Rabies is a virus-related infection which attacks the central nervous system. It is carried and transmitted by mammals, especially dogs, skunks, foxes, raccoons, bats, and rodents. It is spread through a skin wound, a bite or by saliva. The reported case of rabies-carrying animals in our areas has given rise to the need for safety measures to protect oneself when outdoors. Remember that the number one thing you should do is call animal control professionals for suspected cases of rabid animals when outdoors.
