Rabies Alert Issued at Disney World

Disney World's Epcot theme park is under a 60-day rabies alert. The Florida Health Department issued the alert after several workers were scratched by a feral cat found to have rabies.

Tourists and residents are advised to avoid stray dogs, feral cats, and all wildlife particularly raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes for a two mile stretch near Epcot Center Drive in Orange County. Two theme parks and multiple resorts are located in the affected area.

Anyone who gets scratched or bitten by a wild animal should seek medical attention immediately. Rabies is deadly, but quick treatment can protect a person following exposure.
