In brief: Yes

Rabies in the U.
S. Is carried by raccoons, skunks, foxes, coyotes, and bats. These wild animals can transmit rabies to cats, dogs, livestock, and humans. Any mammal can become infected with rabies. The virus is in the saliva of the infected animal. Kissing a rabid person (or any contact with infected saliva) is an easy way to get rabies.
