A cautionary word about rabies (from the State of Illinois):

Any wild mammal, like a raccoon, skunk, fox, coyote or bat, can have rabies and transmit it to people or pets. The animal need not be foaming at the mouth or be exhibiting rabies symptoms. Changes in the animal's normal behavior, difficulty with walking, or just an overall appearance of illness can be early signs of rabies. For example, skunks, which normally are nocturnal and avoid contact with people, may appear friendly or ill and may approach humans during daylight hours.

Animals exhibiting this behavior should be completely avoided.  Please contact us for a removal quote if you believe you have a rabid animal on your property.
