Hey park goers, I saw two sick, very possibly rabid animals in the park today (park workers were notified) while walking my dog. There was a very ill opossum on the peninsula and a possibly sick raccoon this afternoon (well before sunset) near PPW. I don't know what happened with them--my dog was going nuts over the easy prey so I didn't stick around.
I and other dog owners have seen quite a few dead raccoons around the park recently and I've heard second-hand about another possibly rabid (or otherwise ill) opossum, so be careful. Dog owners and parents should especially be careful. I've actually witnessed a mother walk her toddler up to an obviously rabid raccoon and try to pet it so know that if you can get that close to one, you should NOT get close.
