North Franklin Township to be baited this year with Oral Rabies Vaccines targeting raccoons –
Hand baiting will take place August 5th to August 21st.
The public is asked to keep dogs confined to their properties or on leashes during the weeks of rabies hand baiting and the week after.
In recent years, there have been incidents of off-leash dogs consuming baits within parks. Parks are common places for human and animal interactions with raccoons and are therefore important sites for baiting to reduce rabies exposure.
