Someone took a pet raccoon into a bar, leading to a rabies warning for all of North Dakota. The 'captive raccoon' was brought into a bar in Maddock, North Dakota, on Tuesday, Sept. 6, North Dakota Health and Human Services (HHS) said in the news release. The bartender told the Bismarck Tribune that about 10 people were in the bar at the time. The person showed the raccoon to the bartender and another customer as the employee tried to get it out 'as fast as I could,' the outlet reported. The warning from the HHS said the incident may have exposed people to rabies.
