Ways to protect you and your family:

  • Do not feed or touch wildlife.
  • Teach children to observe wildlife from a distance and to notify an adult if there is a wild animal in the area or if they are bitten or scratched.
  • Eliminate food sources for wild animals by not feeding pets outdoors, closing pet doors especially at night, and tightly close garbage cans and feed bins.
  • Ensure that your pets, including horses and livestock, are up to date on their rabies vaccinations.


Call the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment if you have other questions about exposure to animals with rabies at (970) 498-6775.
