BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) - Police in New Hampshire are warning residents about possible rabid raccoons.

Brentwood police tell WMUR-TV residents have experienced encounters with raccoons that were likely rabid. Police say residents should stay away from aggressive wildlife.

Rabies is almost always fatal once symptoms develop. A vaccine given after a wound but before symptoms almost always prevents the disease.
