  • I wonder if the skunk is a favorite because it stands out so well on a dark night, at least if it has white, like it usually does.

    Are owls affected by rabies?

  • Thanks, chefgrape! Actually, I believe that since God took so much time and effort to make all of these creatures, He has to take care of me as well!

  • Steve, from what I know there has been no evidence of any birds found carrying the rabies virus or having died from it. Usually, when a bird or small wild mammal is bitten by a rabid animal it dies from trauma rather than rabies, which takes time to develop.

    However, rabies can supposedly be carried by any warm-blooded animal.

    Many animals carry the rabies virus but never develop symtpoms from it.
