So you are encouraged to care... and share! Help keep them wild!
Rabies can be a serious threat and bites from animals that are not rabid can also be painful. Stray animals roaming your neighborhood can pose a real danger as they are probably unvaccinated. One of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from rabies is to vaccinate your pets and avoid contact with wild animals. Do not feed or handle them even if they seem friendly.
If you see a wild animal acting strangely, report it to animal control. Small mammals are also carriers of the deer ticks that cause Lyme disease. If anyone comes across any wildlife that appears ill, do not try to handle it, but rather call Animal Control at (609) 883-2900 ext. 7175 or the Police Department after hours.

Protect yourself and the environment. Wild and exotic animals should not be kept as pets. Some of these pets, if released into the environment, can cause irreversible and costly damage to our ecosystems. People often get these animals when they are small and then have few options when the animals grow too large or dangerous to handle. They may carry diseases and parasites that can be transmitted to humans.
The Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades provide a sobering example of the incalculable damage to our native ecoystems due to release of exotic pets.
