Abstract All mammals are believed susceptible to rabies virus infection, yet transmission from nonreservoir hosts to humans is uncommon. However, interactions between nonreservoir hosts and humans occur frequently and risk of exposure increases where rabies is enzootic. We describe rabies and apparent pantropism of rabies virus in a beaver (Castor canadensis).

TLDR
In the United States, multiple rabies virus variants are maintained in wild mammalian reservoir populations, such as raccoons, skunks, foxes, and bats, there is always a risk of reintroduction of these variants.
Overview, prevention, and treatment of rabies.
TLDR
The 5 clinical stages of rabies, current methods of diagnosis, and prevention in animal reservoirs and in humans are reviewed, and the use ofrabies immune globulin and active and passive vaccinations for preexposure prophylaxis and postexposure treatment of rabie are discussed.
Susceptibility and Pathogenesis of Little Brown Bats (Myotis lucifugus) to Heterologous and Homologous Rabies Viruses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that intramuscular inoculation results in a more rapid progression of disease onset, whereas the incubation time in bats inoculated s.c. is significantly longer and bats that developed rabies following s.
Bat Rabies Surveillance in Europe
TLDR
An assessment of the bat rabies surveillance data in Europe is provided, taking both reported data to the WHO Rabies Bulletin Europe and published results into account and virus neutralizing antibodies against lyssaviruses were detected in various European bat species from different countries.
The long incubation period in rabies: delayed progression of infection in muscle at the site of exposure
TLDR
A major role of muscle (tissue) infection at the inoculation site in the long incubation period of rabies in skunks is indicated, which will be useful in rabies control and, if applicable to other species, will be relevant in postexposure treatment.
SURVEILLANCE AND SPATIOTEMPORAL ASSOCIATIONS OF RABIES IN RODENTS AND LAGOMORPHS IN THE UNITED STATES, 1985–1994
TLDR
Although rodents and lagomorphs are infrequently infected with rabies and human contact with these animals rarely requires postexposure treatment, appropriate health authorities need to evaluate individual circumstances surrounding potential exposures.
Development and evaluation of an in vitro virus isolation procedure as a replacement for the mouse inoculation test in rabies diagnosis
TLDR
The New York State rabies diagnostic laboratory has replaced the MIT with the in vitro procedure as a backup for the fluorescent-antibody test in the routine diagnosis of rabies.
