You should always use caution around any wildlife and not approach them or try to touch them.
If you see an animal in the daytime, it does not mean the animal has rabies.
These animals may include:
If an animal appears healthy and is seen during the day, it may be unable to return to its den or is looking for food. Healthy wildlife, especially raccoons, may look for food in the twilight hours.
It is not unusual to see a raccoon at dusk or dawn.
If left alone, healthy wildlife will eventually return to their dens once they feel safe.
