    6-year-old Ryker Roque passed away in an Orlando hospital, his father said MondayA 6-year-old Florida boy who was undergoing experimental treatment after being diagnosed with rabies has died. Ryker Roque passed away in an Orlando hospital, his father said Monday. Roque had been undergoing the treatment, called the Milwaukee protocol, after he was scratched by a bat. His father, Henry Roque, had found the sick bat and put it in a bucket, telling his son not to touch it. "So, apparently he put his hand in there and touched it and he said it only scratched him, so I frantically...

    It started with a bat in a bucket and a curious 6-year-old boy. Now that boy, Ryker Roque, is being kept under anesthesia in an Orlando hospital in a desperate bid to save him from the deadliest virus there is: rabies. If Ryker Roque lives, he will be only the third child in the U.S. to survive rabies, which is almost always fatal. But the family is trying an experimental technique they hope will help Ryker survive the terrible infection. It started when Ryker's father, Henry Roque, found a sick bat. "(I) found a bat, put it in a little...

Rabies is a serious viral disease that can be transmitted from infected mammals to humans through a bite, scratch, or when animal saliva comes into contact with broken skin.
  • Video Shows Rabid Bobcat Attacking Florida Wildlife Officer

    A frightening encounter between a rabid bobcat and Florida Wildlife Officers was captured on camera. Last week, the bobcat got into a North Port home from through an open front door and would not leave. FWC was called to the scene. Officers used a catchpole to try to get the animal out of the family's back porch, but it became aggressive and scratched one of the officers. The feline was eventually removed and later euthanized. Officials said the bobcat tested positive for rabies. Another bobcat attack took place nearby the home the same week. A rabies alert is in effect...

    According to the South Central Public Health District five bats have tested positive for rabies since early June. Rabies can be fatal to humans and animals if not treated early. Bats are considered natural reservoirs for rabies. Tanis Maxwell with South Central Public Health District says in a news release, “the number of phone calls we have received about dead bats has increased recently”, however Maxwell noted “that no bats in south central Idaho have tested positive for rabies and the statewide numbers do not indicate an increase in the number of infected bats”. Laboratory testing is the only way...

Those two people have not yet come forward to seek medical attention. The animal was not tested, and the concern is that it might have been rabid. Rabies is fatal in humans and animals once symptoms appear, according to the health officials.

    Public officials are reminding animal owners to vaccinate their pets in the wake of a confirmed rabies case. A cat in the city of Monterey that became aggressive and later died was confirmed by health authorities to have been infected with rabies, only the second laboratory-confirmed case in at least 30 years. It’s difficult to determine how animals get rabies, and health officials are now focused on the health of the family where the animal lived, Monterey County Health Officer Edward Moreno said. “Our priority when we find an animal that has rabies is to identify humans that may have...

    I had missed this article when it came out in June of 2014.   It was particularly startling because there is no mention of the beaver having rabies.  The animal literally jumped out of the water, grabbed the kayaker by the arm, and pulled him from the boat.  From wtvr.com: “It’s just a freak thing. This beaver was upset about something and went after him,” kayaking trainer Nate Reynolds said. “I heard him yell my name, so I come running out. As soon as I came out, I see the boat flip over, so the beaver had actually jumped...
  • Tina Brown Treats Republicans Like Dogs: 'They Had Their Rabies Shots'

    Tart-tongued Tina Brown is at it again. On today's Morning Joe, seeking to explain why Republicans are doing surprisingly well with women voters this year, Brown said: "they had their rabies shots." Brown was responding to a Politico article reporting that President Obama is under water with women voters, and that this is spilling over into Senate races. In Colorado, for example, a poll shows Republican Cory Gardner leading Dem Mark Udall by nine points among women. And even Alison Lundergan Grimes [who may or may not have voted for Barack Obama], only leads among women by two. Brown's ugly...
  • Trapped, then poisoned: Kabul's ruthless dog cull

    Kabul - Cornered against a wall and with a steel hook pushed around his neck, the dog emits a savage howl in a desperate attempt to fight free, but poison will soon be forced into his mouth as Kabul's cull of strays claims another kill. About 17 600 dogs were poisoned last year by municipal workers in the Afghan capital in an effort to protect residents from disease and to control the rocketing population of canines that roam the city's streets and open ground. The method of killing is brutally effective. Teams of dog-catchers wearing orange suits use long steel...

    "A kayaker in Upstate New York was hospitalized after being attacked by a beaver in Irondequoit Creek last week. Michael Cavanaugh was knocked into the water when the beaver jumped out of the creek and started mauling him, biting him on his back and arm. "I heard my name called out from the shop and I ran out the door to see a guy getting pulled into the water," a trainer at BayCreek Paddling Center tells WHAM. "It was like watching a horror film." Cavanaugh was able to get to the dock, but the beaver wouldn't let go, so the...

    The death of a Guatemalan immigrant from rabies last year at a Corpus Christi hospital set off a transnational search for others who may have been exposed. The Corpus Christi Caller-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1kIVAJt ) that more than 700 people were assessed for rabies exposure in what Ryan Wallace, a rabies expert for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, called a very rare scenario. Federico Mendez-Hernandez began showing symptoms after Border Patrol captured him in South Texas following his illegal entry.
