So how do raving, rabid, rabbits fit into a Canadian theme?
Did you know that they are working hard to eradicate rabies from Ontario? At least from SOUTHERN Ontario?
We’ve had flair ups of rabies…due to dastardly hitchhikers coming up from the States, but the ministry is very aggressive in maintaining a 100 km rabies free zone from the US border.
Helicopters and Twin Otter aircraft pepper hectares of forest with
vaccine-laced bait traps. Teams of hardened trappers patrol the
backcountry to inoculate thousands of skunks, raccoons and foxes — and
neutralize the hundreds more that can’t be saved. NO RABIES! NO RABIES!!!!! (save us from New York rabid wild critters!)
How do rabbits fit into this picture?
1. I raise rabbits and think they are a rather cool critter. and
2. Rabbits cannot get rabies. Go figure. 🙂 All the more reason to have more of them around eh? (okay… they MIGHT be able to get rabies, but the chances are so small as to be unimportant).
This is what one comes up with at 1142 at night when one realizes they have done the WRONG letter for the week. I had a great post for the letter S (you’ll have to read it next week).
So today you get to learn about about raving, rabid, rabbits. 🙂
See.. THREE R’s!
Normal rabid animals: Rats, skunks, foxes, raccoons (the normal hitchhiker), deer, mink, and such like.
So anyways, welcome to week “R” of blogging the alphabet. I’m hoping you’ll forgive my tired ramblings (see look a FOURTH R) and join Amanda and I anyways.
Rock on Week R!!! (see see.. A FIFTH!!!) 🙂
