A 33-year-old member asked:
is it possible to get rabies from a duck?
1 doctor answer
No: Only mammals can be infected with rabies and potentially transmit the disease. Species that pose no risk of a rabies direct transmission include avians ( e.g., chickens, ducks, geese, hawks, eagles, owls, and even vultures), reptiles (lizards, turtles, etc.), and amphibians (e.g., frogs). http://epi.publichealth.nc.gov/cd/lhds/manuals/rabies/docs/other_animals.pdf
