Rabies is a deadly disease that is caused by a virus and is found worldwide. Once symptoms appear, the disease is almost always fatal.
Reoccurrence of raccoon strain rabies
There are several different strains (types) of rabies, including raccoon, fox and bat strains. In late 2015, several cases of raccoons with raccoon strain rabies were found in the Hamilton area. These are the first cases of raccoon strain rabies since 2005.
As a result of these cases, Government of Ontario initiated additional oral rabies vaccine baiting targeting foxes, raccoons and skunks.
This municipality currently has no positive rabies tests in wild animals.
