Otter with Rabies     
Earlier this week, a dead otter was found in the creek near Skinners Turn Road. The otter tested positive for rabies. Rabies infections in otters are rare. It was likely infected by a raccoon when it went on land. This is a reminder that the rabies virus is endemic in the raccoon population across Maryland and the entire mid-Atlantic region. Please keep your pets up to date on vaccination. If you observe any wild animals acting in unusual ways, including seeing nocturnal animals like skunks out during the daytime, or animals that are normally reclusive sitting out in the open, please avoid contact and notify County Animal Control (410) 535-1600 x2526.
