Surprise delivery — babyraccoons — at New York agency
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Someoneleft ﬁve well-fed baby raccoons on thedoorstep of the Westchester CountyHealth Department Friday morning,and the department said that personshould call immediately to beassessed for the possibility of rabies.The month-old raccoons were deliv-ered to the department’s office inMount Kisco in a cage with bottles of milk, blankets and toys, the depart-ment said.“They appear to have been wellcared for and nurtured, which meansthat there was direct contact betweenthese raccoons and the person or peo-ple who were caring for them,” saidDr. Sherlita Amler, the county healthcommissioner. “That’s why it’simportant that we talk to the individ-ual or individuals who left them todetermine if they may have beenpotentially exposed to rabies.”Raccoons are among the most com-mon carriers of rabies, a disease thatis fatal if not quickly treated.Department spokeswoman CarenHalbﬁnger said if the raccoons’care-taker comes forward, he or she will beasked about any bites or scratches.Ofﬁcials also want to know if the rac-coons’mother was sick.That would help determine whetherthe animals must be tested for rabies,which can only be done by killingthem, and if any people need treat-ment.The raccoons were placed with a cer-tiﬁed wildlife rehabilitator who willwatch them for signs of the disease.
