Skunks No. 1 Rabies Threat In Oklahoma

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Since last year, skunks have been the
state's Number one rabies threat.

The state health department has recorded 181 cases - a majority
of those cases involved skunks.

Health officials say most animals -- such as dogs, cats, horses
or rabbits -- sometimes are bitten by skunks.

Cats are more at risk of contacting the disease, since they tend
to have nocturnal habits, like skunks.

A sure sign a skunk may be rabid? When one is seen walking
around in the daytime.
