Default Son learned a painful lesson today

He works at tractor supply and a raccoon got into the store. They called animal control to come remove it and they refused. So they were trying to chase the raccoon out and he had on leather gloves and grabbed it by the back of the neck. It twisted around and bit him. Animal control finally was forced to come since it bit someone but they won’t have results from the raccoon until Monday which would be too late for vaccines. So he’s at the ER now getting full rabies post exposure prophylaxis immunizations.

I’ve given them…. They are. I had to give them to someone in their face once. He’s texting me (we’re on the way to the deer lease) saying the nurse says she feels bad for him because of the size of the needles and does he really need all this…. I told him not to mess with raccoons anymore.

Rabies is probably the most deadliest pathogen known to man with an almost 100% fatality rate if left untreated.

Once you start showing symptoms (usually about a month), it’s too late.

And it’s a very horrible death. YouTube has some good documentaries on the topic.

Rat shot or grab a shovel...IMO, could be one of the best life lessons one needs for reference in similar circumstances.

I recall hearing a detailed horror story as young man about a fisherman getting hurt trying to save a fowl hooked gull while fishing...ended up with scars, the hook in him & an infection / hospital visit. I hooked one decades later on a guide trip & handled it quite differently.

No. The immunoglobulins (which are what helps to kill the virus at the site immediately) are weight based and as much as possible is infiltrated around the wound and then the remainder give as a intramuscular injection. The vaccine is give intramuscular (they gave in his arm) and give at day 0, day 3, day 7 and day 14.

Well, he got it done!

Might should have worn welding gloves! Course, a coon might have bit through those, too. Little bastids are nasty mean.

Hope he does well.

When I had my little altercation with a rabied animal, the doctor told me I had 44 days to start the shots. Asked if I had washed my hands after. She said rabies is one of the most fragile of all viruses and soap and water wash would kill it. I did not have to take the shots and didn't have the results for 11 days.
