Fact: Although most rabid animals present symptoms like aggression or lack of body balance, some animals may not have noticeable symptoms.
Hence, it is important to avoid contact with wild or untamed animals. In regions with canine rabies, avoid contact with dogs, cats, monkeys and other animals that bite, especially if they are acting strangely. Educate children about the disease and teach them not to play, pet or feed animals, despite the animal being friendly. Ensure that children report any contact with an animal.
