Raccoon Rabies InfographicDR® Power Equipment today published a new infographic designed to help property owners protect their family and pets from Raccoon rabies infection this summer.

Though human cases are rare in the United States, more than eight thousand non-human rabies infections are reported each year. Raccoon constitute approximately 50% of all these cases, and raccoons living in the eastern United States are especially likely to be carriers of the disease.

Raccoons exposed to rabies are a threat to cats, dogs, and other pets as well as humans.

Besides keeping your pets’ rabies vaccinations up to date, the simplest way to limit your and your family’s raccoon rabies risk is to keep the animals out of your yard.

  1. Secure Lids of All Trash Cans.
  2. Install Motion-Sensitive Security Lights Near any Outdoor Trash Area
  3. Put Your Pets’ Food Up at Night
  4. Stop Feeding the Birds (Raccoons will eat bird seed from feeders)
  5. Never Feed or Handle Raccoons or other Wild Animals
