that's not actually true. Opossum are immune to Rabies, but will act like they have it as a defense mechanism.
you are soooooo very wrong!!!! They CAN get rabies. Please do your research!
Opossums are practically immune to rabies because their body-temperature is too low to support the virus. It is not 100% impossible, but very rare, for an opossum to have rabies. The possibility is increased if the opossum happens to live in proximity to a large concentration of raccoons.
actually, no. He's right about squirrels but not because they're not carnivores. It's because squirrels are fast. And if they're caught by a rabid mammal, they're killed by it due to their size. Dead squirrels should be avoided for this reason. Living ones are almost always safe. Google it. Bats are small and fast but unlik squirrels, they live in colonies so they CAN get it and should be avoided.
Raccoons are the number one transmitters of Rabies in N. America according to the cdc.
Ok people heres the facts to help you.
1. only mammals can contract rabies. That means fish, birds, and reptiles can not. if you dont believe it look up animals who can contract rabies it should be on google.
2. Cats are currently the highest carriers for rabies in n.america due to the over abundence of ferro cats today. It originally was raccoons. yes squirrels and bunnies. And rabbits are all mammals yes. They can have rabies!
If a animal could possibly be carrying rabies do NOT eat the brains, organs, or bone maero. The main meat is the only safe area. if the animal was possibly bitten before killed. Do NOT eat the meat around the bitten area as well. Completely remove the areas. If it was bite on the leg or neck or head etc, discard the entire area.
Make sure meat is completely cooked
there are many animal disease and control sites you can use for any more information or questions you may need help with
um you have that backwards. Only mammals get rabies and since fish aren't mammals they can't get rabies. Squirrels can get rabies, but it is extremely rare.
