Health Tip: Avoiding Animal Bites
It's usually someone's pet

By Scott Roberts

(HealthDay News) -- Wild animals seldom bite people unless they are threatened or sick, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Most animal bites are caused by a pet -- yours or someone else's.

To help prevent animal bites, the CDC suggests:

  • Never pet or feed an animal that you don't know.
  • If your child is near an animal, watch the child closely.
  • Spay your dog, which should make the dog less aggressive.
  • Vaccinate your pets against rabies.
  • Wear boots and long pants if you're anywhere near poisonous snakes.
