Figure 2: Number of rabid raccoons, Manhattan, New York, USA, by week, during and after the epizootic in Central Park and the corresponding dates of the 3 rounds of the trap-vaccinate-release program (TVR).

Mentions: At the peak of the epizootic, 11 rabid raccoons were reported per week. By April, the epizootic started to decline (Figure 2), probably attributable to the natural depopulation resulting from rapid spread of the virus and to the population immunity resulting from TVR. The last cases of rabid raccoons were reported on February 2 and December 9, 2011.
