Help Prevent Rabies
The raccoon strain of rabies has not been detected in Kentucky. However, it occurs in neighboring states east of the Appalachians. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife is working in cooperation with the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to monitor the westward spread of raccoon rabies and the potential occurrence in Kentucky.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife is asking that hunters and trappers donate heads from raccoons, coyotes, skunks, and red and gray foxes from the following counties: Bell, Boyd, Bracken, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Floyd, Greenup, Harlan, Johnson, Knott, Knox, Laurel, Lawrence, Leslie, Letcher, Lewis, Martin, Mason, McCreary, Morgan, Perry, Pike, Robertson, and Whitley. Please remove the animalís head and place it in a zip-loc bag and freeze it. Label the bag with the species, county, specific location, date the animal was collected, sex and age if known, and collector name, address, and phone number. Please call 1-800-858-1549 when you are ready for the heads to be picked up.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife is collecting bobcat carcasses for statewide studies of reproduction and age structure. If you would like to donate a carcass, please write the county, specific location (GPS location, creek name, road name, intersection, etc.), date the animal was trapped, hunted, or road-killed and collector name, address, and phone number on a piece of paper. Enclose the paper in a zip-loc bag and attach it to the carcass. Please keep the carcass frozen and call 1-800-858-1549 to have it picked up.
