1 new case of raccoon strain rabies, occurring in a skunk from Hamilton, and confirmation of a bovid, presumed with fox strain rabies, in Perth County, at the same location as a previous positive case.
"A flock of 18,000 chickens used for breeding was culled after testing positive for H7 bird flu, according to the agriculture department. It said the birds in far northwestern Georgia were likely infected with a form of the virus that is not highly lethal because the flock did not show signs of illness."
It's not just Ontario where rabies is an issue- recent reports of rabies across America. If you are traveling with a pet or horse, make sure you evaluate the risk with your veterinarian and consider vaccination.
“This suggests that not all infections with this parasite lead to severe disease,” said Michael Yabsley, a professor with the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study housed in the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine. “This is in contrast to what has been previously reported for most diagnosed patients.” buff.ly/2nb9GZ5 #onehealth #wildlife ...
