A feral cat in Walt Disney World's Epcot just tested positive for rabies and the local health department is warning people to be careful during the coming months because it could have infected other animals. Contact with feral cats, stray dogs, raccoons, bats, foxes, skunks, otters, bobcats and coyotes should be avoided.
According to Disney spokeswoman, two employees were scratched by the cat near an office building roughly two miles from Epcot.

"This alert should not give a false sense of security to areas that have not been named under this alert", officials warned in a statement. So the public must maintain a heightened awareness about rabies and get all the domestic animals vaccinated as they are at high risk.
Disney's Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom, which is home to a number of wild animals, are roughly four and five miles from Epcot, respectively. The alert covers a two-mile radius across the intersection and expires in 60 days. Disney's Hollywood Studios, which is expecting massive crowds for its new Star Wars area starting August 29, sits outside the alert area, as do the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks.
Both Disney employees were treated and have returned to work, the Disney spokesperson said. "We continue to encourage our cast and guests not to engage with wildlife".
