    All mammals can carry rabies, including humans. Luckily, due to vaccinations in pets it’s mostly wild animals that carry the virus. However, any mammal bitten by another rabid animal can contract the disease, even if it is simply through contact of an open wound with the rabid animals saliva. It’s for this reason that people are advised to keep themselves and their pets away from any wild animals, especially those that show possible signs of rabies.

    Raccoons mostly commonly carry the virus in the USA. Skunks, foxes, bats and coyotes also known to be frequent carriers.
