Unfortunately, rabies cases are being reported not only in the Hamilton area, but Perth County as well.
A second calf on a beef cattle farm died and tested positive with rabies. The ministry suspects that both calves were infected with the rabies virus by a skunk, which the farmer said he smelled in the barn a few weeks prior to the first calf becoming sick. Please call the public health unit, your local veterinarian or the Ministry of Natural Resources if you see sick wildlife in the area.
