Surprise delivery baby raccoons at New York agency
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Someone leftﬁve well-fed baby raccoons on thedoorstep of the Westchester CountyHealth Department Friday morning, andthe department said that person shouldcall immediately to be assessed for thepossibility of rabies.The month-old raccoons were deliv-ered to the department’s ofﬁce in MountKisco in a cage with bottles of milk,blankets and toys, the department said.“They appear to have been well caredfor and nurtured, which means that therewas direct contact between these rac-coons and the person or people whowere caring for them,” said Dr. SherlitaAmler, the county health commissioner.“That’s why it’s important that we talkto the individual or individuals who leftthem to determine if they may have beenpotentially exposed to rabies.”Raccoons are among the most com-mon carriers of rabies, a disease that isfatal if not quickly treated.Department spokeswoman CarenHalbﬁnger said if the raccoons’caretak-er comes forward, he or she will be askedabout any bites or scratches. Ofﬁcialsalso want to know if the raccoons’mother was sick.That would help determine whether theanimals must be tested for rabies, whichcan only be done by killing them, and if any people need treatment.The raccoons were placed with a cer-tiﬁed wildlife rehabilitator who willwatch them for signs of the disease.
