Rabies is a potential deadly viral infection that kills around 60,000 people per year worldwide. It is normally spread by entering the body through wounds (e.g. scratches) or by direct contact with mucosal surfaces from an infected animal (e.g. bites). Animals that are common carriers include dogs, cats, monkeys, foxes, bats, raccoons, skunks, cattle, wolves, coyotes, mongooses, groundhogs, weasels, bears and other wild carnivores.
