|USDA/APHIS Using Helicopters to Drop Rabies Vaccine|
October 1, 2012
USDA/APHIS Wildlife Biologist Dana Johnson informed us this morning that helicopters will be utilized to drop packets of rabies vaccine over parts of Autauga and Elmore Counties this week to fight the westward spread of the rabies virus. There were only two confirmed cases of rabies last year, which is much better than the year before when they had 15 confirmed cases. While predominantly an issue with the raccoon population, it has been known to be found in the fox population, although these cases are rare.
