Pet owners be warned: South Bend seeing spike in number of sick raccoons


Local officials tell our reporting partners at the South Bend Tribune they are seeing a rise in the number of sick raccoons across the area.

As many as 65 have been euthanized in the past three months because of disease.

If this illness spreads to pets, it can be deadly.

Experts recommended you get your pets vaccinated for several diseases and illnesses including distemper and parvo virus -- not just rabies.
