    E. Rabbit.

    The highest risk exposure in the USA is bats. Raccoons, skunks, foxes, and coyotes also pose high risks. Domestic dogs are low risk in the USA. Small rodents such as squirrels, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils, chipmunks, rats, and mice, and lagomorphs such as rabbits and hares are low risk.
