Do Not Approach Friendly Wildlife

July 7, 2021

There has been a recent uptick in rabid animal sightings and an incident of a hiker being bit by an animal.

Remember do not approach any friendly-seeming animals you encounter along the trail. These animals may be rabid.

Always be sure to practice Leave No Trace principle 6: Respect wildlife. Observe wildlife from a distance for your safety and the well-being of the animals.
