Indonesian City Hit With Rabies Outbreak

An Indonesian city called Bali has had a breakout of rabies from all the dogs that are running around though out their city with sixty five people dieing within the last two years.

Can you only imagine that there are three hundred people being bit a day in their city. With their Hindu beliefs that the dogs are sacred their are about five hundred thousand dogs running around living off the streets.

I can see why their are so many people being bitten by these dogs. Hopefully the Bali Animal Welfare Association can keep up the demand and vaccinate all the dogs before more people die from the rabies outbreak.
