Just a friendly reminder that although we all care about wild animals, we’re not helping them, or ourselves, by leaving food scraps outside to feed them.
Fruit, melon rinds, treats, and leftovers are a sure magnet for raccoons, javelina, fox, coyotes, etc. and these species are potentially dangerous, not only to yourself, but to the community and its pets.
Many now carry rabies and Cochise County warns us that rabies can be transmitted from wild animals to pets, and then to humans.
So please dispose of food properly … in your mouth or in your garbage can!
