  • Donít touch a fox, coyote, or other wild canine, dead or alive, unless you are wearing gloves. Hunters and trappers should use plastic gloves to avoid exposure.
  • Donít keep wild animals, especially wild canines, as pets or encourage them to come close to your home.
  • Donít allow your cats and dogs to wander freely or to capture and eat rodents.
  • If you think that your pet may have eaten rodents, consult your veterinarian about the possible need for preventive treatments.
  • After handling pets, always wash your hands with soap and warm water.
  • Fence in gardens to keep out wild animals.
