Rabies vaccine to be dropped from the air

The Texas Department of State Health Services will drop vaccines from the air Wednesday.

It's part of the annual effort to protect people and livestock from rabies. They'll drop about 1.8 million doses of the rabies vaccine over the next month.

The vaccines are enclosed in small packets dipped in fish oil and coated with fish meal crumbles.

The baits don't pose a risk to humans, but organizers say you should avoid them because animals are less likely to eat the bait if a human has been messing with it.


What are your thoughts on this?

Sounds good enough...they make sure that the animals would actually eat it by coating it with fishy goodness
