Rabies

Rabies is a viral disease of mammals most often transmitted through the bite of a rabid animal. The vast majority of rabies cases reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) each year occur in wild animals like raccoons, skunks, bats, foxes, and coyotes.

The rabies virus infects the central nervous system (CNS), ultimately causing encephalitis and death.
