Stepped on dead mouse
It was raining outside, and as I got out of my car I might have stepped on a dead mouse. It's throat was clearly slit by a bite, which could've been the bite of a rabid dog. I am not sure when it was killed. I was wearing shoes when I stepped on the mouse. As I got back in the car, my shoes did get in touch with my car's control (like a gearbox), which I touched with my hand and later ate food. Can I be exposed to the rabies virus or is it just an irrational fear?
