Raccoons and bats are the most commonly rabid animal currently found in Princeton. The Princeton Health Department urges parents to speak with their children about not approaching wild animals, specifically raccoons. Property owners are also urged to monitor the exterior of dwellings to ensure there are no openings which may allow the entry of bats. The best time of the day to do this is at dusk when bats will typically leave their roosts and hunt for flying insects. Bats can be seen exiting through eaves, vents or from behind shutters or siding. If you notice an opening in the exterior and have reason to believe bats have been entering/exiting your home, contact a licensed pest control company, or the Princeton Health Department for guidance.'New Jersey: Between 1971 and September 2015, two people have died of rabies in New Jersey
