Colorado having record year for rabies reports
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment reports the state is on track to break its record for wildlife rabies, mainly due to the spread of rabies in skunks. So far this year, 99 animals have tested positive for rabies, including 34 skunks and 54 bats. In 2009, 103 animals tested positive, surpassing the annual record of 70 cases in 2006, all of which were bats. Denver Post.
