Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry will be flying over parts of eastern Ontario in the latter half of August to help vaccinate wildlife against rabies.
The province controls rabies in wildlife by dropping baits that contain vaccine in urban, forested and rural agricultural areas. According to the MNRF, a yellow Twin Otter aircraft will be flying over areas along the St. Lawrence in Frontenac, Leeds & Grenville, and Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry counties in mid-to-late August to drop the vaccine packs.
“Baits are dropped for foxes, raccoons and skunks to eat in areas where rabies has been detected in wildlife in the current or previous year,” a statement on the provincial government’s website says.
