Rabies is a fatal viral disease found mainly in wildlife (especially raccoons, foxes, bats, skunks and woodchucks) but can infect domestic animals and humans.

The Vermont Rabies Control Manual is a rabies resource to help veterinarians, doctors, town health officers, animal control officers, and game wardens with rabies control and prevention in Vermont.
