rabies/animal bites

If you have been bit by an animal:

✔️Wash the area with soap and water for at least 15 minutes.
✔️Control any bleeding.
✔️Seek medical attention.
✔️Report the bite to law enforcement.
✔️Do not destroy or release an animal that has bitten a person until one consults with a Public Health official.  In nearly all cases, observation or testing of the animal can eliminate the need to administer the series of injections to prevent rabies.
