Canine distemper is a common disease and is usually fatal. Raccoons with distemper act tame or confused, and eventually lose coordination, become unconscious and die. Distemper cannot be transmitted to humans or immunized pets. The mere sight of an animal, i.e. raccoon or fox, out during the daytime DOES NOT necessarily mean they are sick in the absence of other factors.
