Try for a moment to imagine strolling aimlessly through your garden, admiring the luscious green scenery as a bandit marked critter scurries your way. Upon instinct your way of reaction is that this cute, cuddly mischievous looking creature is friendly and wants to play! Well I am sorry to say that you’re sadly mistaken and this black-eyed critter is the best host for a dreadful disease called Rabies. Now of course not every stray animal you see is going to have rabies, however, there are many telling signs which you could associate and use to avoid such encounters.
First off, Rabies is a viral disease that affects the nervous system of humans and other animals. It’s largely transferred by saliva entering a wound which in turn travels through your blood flow to your brain causing inflammation and swelling. The most common hosts for rabies in america are bats, though worldwide, dogs are the dominant source for transmission.
Maintaining these carriers away from society has become quite a task. Animal Wildlife Removal experts pride themselves on keeping the streets safe from rabid mammals. They’ll come to your house, business or property and remove any animal deemed unfit for its surroundings. They are of course regulated by state regulations to trap and relocate this animal appropriately.
The largest issue face by wildlife removal specialists is educating others about the best way to deal with potential rabies exposure. If you’re bitten by an animal it is extremely important to immediately call 911. It is also important to try capture of your enemy to use for testing to make sure the animal is or is not a host for rabies. If unable to check the animal you could be in for a wild ride of month long treatments costing around two thousand dollars.
It is important to never handle a wild animal: dog, squirrel, skunk, or raccoon that you are unsure of. Ensuring your children know and to inform an adult if they see a sick or injured animal and not to touch is also very significant. The most common deaths from rabies exposure are in kids.
When it comes to admiring and handling cuddly stray animals, think twice. Call your local wildlife removal experts for advice on how to handle any wildlife in your area.
