Officials Warn New Yorkers: Beware Rabid Raccoons

Gizmodo reports New Yorkers have a new foe to contend with: rabid raccoons.

The New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said Friday that officials have identified four raccoons with rabies since the start of the year.

The health department is now advising residents to ensure pets are up to date with vaccinations.

While there have been sporadic reports of rabid bats on the island in recent years, there haven’t been any reports of rabid raccoons on the island since 2011.
