Since December 2015, 400 cases of raccoon rabies have been confirmed in Hamilton and surrounding areas, in raccoons and skunks, as well as two stray cats, one red fox and one llama. In the same time, 17 cases of fox rabies have been confirmed in Perth, Huron and Waterloo counties, including six bovines, 10 skunks and one red fox.

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mom's out there.
