If you see an animal that appears to be rabid call (919) 362-8661 and report the location of the animal. Do not attempt to capture the animal. Animals with rabies will show behavioral changes, they can be excited, aggressive, depressed or lethargic. They may be uncoordinated and unfocused on the activity or presence of humans around them.
Some animals that carry rabies are raccoons, foxes, and bats. These animals, which normally avoid humans, are nocturnal and it is unusual for them to be out in daylight hours.
If you are bitten by a domestic animal, North Carolina state law requires that it be reported to the police department.
