While rabies is not common, it remains prevalent in wildlife populations throughout central Texas, primarily in skunks, raccoons, bats, coyotes and foxes. Feral cats and stray dogs can also form a risk to humans. Hamsters, possums and squirrels can carry rabies, but are considered low risk species. Bosque County Sheriff ’s Department Captain Larry Betik and Chief Deputy Clint Pullin arranged a special presentation to increase rabies awareness among the county’s law enforcement personnel and first responders.
