Surviving in this Human World

by Jennifer  Howard, Wildlife Photographer & Procyon volunteer

Surviving in this Human World

A lot of people are mistaking distemper for rabies. Since 2015 to now 2019 there have been 457 cases to date of confirmed rabies and they have all been in our more southern areas. Not here. MNRF has a program where they drop bait with rabies vaccine in it for the wild animals to eat therefor getting protection from contracting the decease. It’s been proven by the statistics to be working.  However a man was bitten by a raccoon recently and presumed it rabid and shot it in the head.
