WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN
nobody rattle me ever i swear to god.
"I just want him all to myself, and now I feel like the whole world is let in on the secret brilliance of Chris Pratt…. He’s a talented rap artist, like to a scale that people don’t know about. He can do anything and everything. He’s like a real live superhero. I’m like his wife: I support him. I dress him. I make sure there’s nothing in his teeth." — Aubrey Plaza
Two incidents of raccoon bites have occurred at UC Santa Cruz within the last week.
If you see a raccoon, please take steps to avoid it. Raccoons are rarely aggressive toward humans but a female will defend her young. While normally nocturnal, they do occasionally come out in the daytime.
Never feed raccoons and be especially cautious when approaching any garbage can or areas where food or scraps can be found. If a raccoon approaches too closely or hisses at you, stand tall, wave your arms, and shout loudly.
Raccoons, along with foxes, skunks and bats are considered primary carriers of the rabies virus. Some behaviors of raccoons with rabies are:
Seemingly oblivious to noise or nearby movement
Discharge from eyes or mouth
Wet and matted hair on face
Repeated high-pitch vocalization
If you see a raccoon showing any of these signs call UC Santa Cruz Police at 459-2231 ext. 1 and report the animal and location. If you come in contact with a raccoon or other rabies vector species or if you are bitten, please seek medical attention immediately.
