Which animals in Colorado might have rabies?
All mammals, including humans, are susceptible. In Colorado, rabies occurs mainly in wild bats and skunks, and less frequently in foxes, raccoons, bobcats, coyotes, etc. Rodents such as rats, mice, gerbils, guinea pigs and squirrels are not likely to be infected with the virus. Herbivores such as deer, elk, and sheep are susceptible but unlikely to be infected. Additional information and statistics on rabies can be found on the Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife website.
