Rabies vaccine baiting resumes

By April 1, 2016Uncategorized

Given skunks and raccoons are more active now that the weather is warmer, the Ministry of Natural Resources will resume the vaccine baiting.  Baits will be distributed by helicopter and by hand at different points this month.  The baits will immunize most skunks, foxes and raccoons over the age of sixteen weeks.  The Ministry will therefore do another round of baiting later in the summer to vaccinate raccoons born in the early summer.  Baits are small and khaki green in colour with a toll free government number printed on them.  The Ministry asks that people do not disturb the baits.
