  • Stay away from raccoons

    Mrs Cox should stay away from the raccoon. He may look safe today, but tomorrow he could show signs of rabies.

    There are two types of rabies, "dumb" and "furious." An animal with furious rabies may act strangely. He could be unnaturally withdrawn or abnormally affectionate. Then the animal can go through a period of biting anything in its path.

    With dumb rabies there is no mad period. They exhibit paralysis, usually of the lower jaw, which spreads to the limbs and vital organs.
