    You really need to check your facts and quite trying to scare
    people because you have no idea what you are talking about.
    Here is a quote/paste from the CDC site. It really wasn't that
    hard to find.

    What is the risk of rabies from squirrels, mice, rats, and
    other rodents?

    Small rodents (such as squirrels, rats, mice, hamsters, guinea
    pigs, gerbils, and chipmunks, ) and lagomorphs (such as rabbits
    and hares) are almost never found to be infected with rabies
    and have not been known to cause rabies among humans in the
    United States. Bites by these animals are usually not
    considered a risk of rabies unless the animal was sick or
    behaving in any unusual manner and rabies is widespread in your
    area.
