Teenager falls ill after kinkajou bite

Posted on November 1st, 2011 No Comments

A 16 year-old girl fell severely ill after her aunt’s pet kinkajou bit her. The kinkajou is an exotic animal related to raccoons from Central and South America and has recently become a popular pet in the United States.

However, just six years ago researchers found that the animal contains a poisonous bacteria in its bite. Less than a day after the attack, the girl started running a fever of 102, urinating blood, and suffering from severe stomach and head aches. She had to remain in the hospital for nearly a week.

Kinkajous are legal exotic pets in the United States, and the aunt purchased the animal legally from a breeder in Florida. However, kinkajous are not considered dangerous in this country and owners are not required to get a permit.
