Beginning August 3rd through August 17th, the Allegheny County Health Department will be distributing raccoon rabies vaccine baits across the County. Please be aware of these baits and ensure that your pets avoid eating them. Although these baits will not harm them, if they eat too many they may end up with an upset stomach. If you must move the baits yourself, use a latex glove or a plastic bag. More information regarding the program can be found here and here or by visiting http://www.achd.net/raccoon/
