Muskrat Jack informs us of a k-9 distemper epidemic in raccoons.

He has picked up and euthanized 5 raccoons in PPB, in the last week with k-9 distemper, and indicated that it has spread to surrounding towns. Symptoms mimic rabies; raccoons acting strange during daylight hours. His concerns are that distemper is highly contagious, and spread airborne. He asked that anyone encountering a raccoon exhibiting this behavior, call the police immediately so they can dispatch him asap. Also, as a precaution, make sure your pets are up to date on all their vaccinations.
