Helicopters helping to fight rabies in Hamilton area
Provincial officials are dropping rabies vaccine bait around Hamilton by hand and by helicopter this week after tests confirmed the first documented case of raccoon rabies in Ontario in nearly a decade on Friday.
The Ministry of Natural Resources is moving quickly to try to contain the spread of the disease. It began by baiting wild animals by hand in the Stoney Creek area Monday. MNR staff are working within a four-kilometre radius of where rabies was discovered after two dogs got into a fight with a rabid raccoon inside an animal control van.
Officials will also drop aerial baits by helicopter on Wednesday, said Dr. Jessica Hopkins, Hamilton's associate medical officer of health, at a board of health meeting on Monday. | READ MORE
