    Rabies Bait Pack Dropping

    Never realized this was going on. Although seems to be happening in more Urban areas has anyone ever come across one of these while hiking? https://www.mychamplainvalley.com/ne...gins/202122399

    Never heard of it. Never seen 'em. Wonder about the incidence and concern for rabid animals in the hills vs the cities.

    I think they talk about the domestication of wild animals in urban areas being a factor of higher incidence. Would only stand to reason that increased population density would also be a factor.

    Yeah, right. Makes sense. Perhaps their drops will be more on the periphery. HA! Good to know, regardless. I'd really REALLY be wondering what was up if I were meandering along and I heard the aircraft then things seemed to be being dropped upon me.

    Vermont has been doing it for years. When I was living there for a short time, they were actually placing baits by hand in some more urban areas.

    Never seen one in the woods.
