When will the Pima Animal Care Center cease from gambling with the lives of Pima County folks?
The West Hawk Way skunk in Elephant Head was not available for determining essential risk factors. Most skunks roam a half to two miles from their dens, thus the den is the site for determining a radius of area for possible contact with other people and animals. Season and gender of the animal can expand this range to a five-mile radius.
History shows a Pima County trend that rabid skunk outbreaks cycle about every 10 years! Anticipate a 2019 outbreak. Cats are the No. 1 transmitter of rabies to humans as they have contact with rabid wildlife.
PACC must give top priority to the health and welfare needs of Pima County residents.
