If you’ve ever had any dead animal in or near your house, you know how bad it is. They smell horrible, and not to mention that it isn’t sanitary. And it’s safe to say it doesn’t really make your house look better either. But many people think that they can handle this problem themselves, but really getting a professional’s help is your best option.
Raccoons are on of the most commonly seen animals. They aren’t afraid of humans, and quite often they will sneak into places they aren’t really welcome. They’ll eat basically anything, so if they get into your house, chances are they won’t be leaving too soon.
If you discover any dead animal in your house, you probably want to get rid of it right away. But animals like raccoons are especially dangerous, because they can carry a lot of diseases.
Basically everyone has heard of rabies, and while it’s unlikely you’ll get rabies from a dead raccoon, it can potentially happen. Even after an animal dies, if it had rabies, the virus can sometimes stay alive after the animal has passed. The amount of time the virus can live changes depending on the temperature outside.
But not only can raccoons get rabies, but they can carry many other harmful parasites as well. These parasites may or may not affect the raccoon, but they could cause serious harm to a human or to a house pet. The only way to surely know if an animal has rabies or other harmful parasites, is by getting it’s tissue tested. And most people don’t have access to things like that. Not to mention that you probably don’t want to get a tissue sample of a dead animal. So it’s best to just steer clear of the body and get professional help as soon as possible.
