    Where I live in the United States, Arizona, there have been some recent cases of horses with rabies. Usually it was found in bats and foxes. Are there any reported cases of rabies in zebra?

    I know it’s very unlikely, but if a child was bitten in its sleep by a rabid dog, what would be the symptoms?
