Rabies Are Contagious Under Certain Conditions

Do not handle your animal with bare hands after it has had contact with a wild animal. Saliva from the wild animal may still be present on the domestic animal’s fur and by handling the animal, you may expose yourself to the rabies virus. You should call the experts at Nuisance Wildlife Removal for a safe and humane wildlife solution.
