What can I say about dogs?
They are the most popular pet in the world.
In fact, you can bet they’re being overlooked in favour of cats, cats are a little more popular than dogs.
So why are they such a big deal?
Well, in the US, they’re considered pests.
And, in Canada, they are the focus of a number of high-profile cases of rabies.
There are also reports of dogs being poisoned by raccoas and cats being the targets of dogs having poisoned pets.
So, while it’s not unheard of for people to come across a raccoon in a building, it’s a whole lot more common to encounter a raccoon in your backyard.
The best thing you can think of is to keep an eye on the animals around you, be aware of where they’re at and always stay indoors, with doors and windows closed.
