This week, two skunks in an urban area of Welland, and one raccoon in rural Lincoln have tested positive for rabies.  Niagara Region Public Health has seen an increase in the number of animals testing positive for rabies in Niagara.  So far, in 2018, there have been six raccoons and four skunks test positive for rabies.  In 2017, there were a total of 21 animals that tested positive for rabies (19 raccoons, two skunks) and 12 in 2016 (10 raccoons, two skunks).  Residents should not approach any wild animal, including those that appear to be in distress, as they may put themselves at risk for injury or contracting an infection like rabies.
