ATTENTION: Beware of Raccoons!

Raccoons can carry rabies, and rabid raccoons have been found in New York City. Although, so far, there has not been a human case of rabies contracted from raccoons in New York City, this risk does exist and should be taken seriously.

To arrange for a raccoon to be picked up that appears to be staggering, convulsing, spitting, choking, or frothing at the mouth, call Animal Care and Control at 311, or your local police precinct.
