Comments:
Do not kill the animal unless confinement is impossible. If the animal is alive and healthy after 10-14 days, exposure to rabies is excluded. If the animal must be killed, do not club or shoot the head. Send only the head packed in ice (do not freeze) to the State Hygienic Laboratory, University of Iowa Research Park. Include complete history of the animal. Call 319-335-4500 for further consultation.
