Raccoon Rabies

The Halton Region Health Department has received test results confirming cases of raccoon rabies found in skunks in Burlington. The rabies virus is spread through the saliva of an infected animal, usually entering through a bite or scratch. Halton Health Dept reminds anyone who comes into physical contact with a raccoon or other wild animal to see a physician immediately about post-exposure rabies treatment and to report the exposure to the Health Dept as soon as possible, by calling 311. 

The Health Department is reminding residents to:
  • teach children to avoid unfamiliar cats and dogs, not to touch sick or dead animals and to observe wild animals from a distance,
  • ensure dogs and cats are kept up-to-date with their rabies vaccinations, 
  • not allow pets to roam free and keep them indoors at night to prevent contact with wild animals, 
  • take pets that come in contact with a raccoon or other wild animal to a veterinarian for follow-up, 
  • not attempt to relocate wild animals.
