Rabies is a deadly disease caused by a virus that attacks the nervous system. The virus lives in the saliva and brain tissue of infected mammals. Rabies is fatal once it reaches the brain. All pets/domestic animals must be confined for 10 days of observation after exposure. Wild animals will be tested for the virus.
*Although daytime activity in primarily nocturnal animals can be a sign or symptom of rabies, development into new areas that were at one time these animals' natural habitat can alter their historically normal patterns. PCAS recommends that you do not feed or interact with wildlife, no matter the situation.
