Rabies is a Thing of the Past, Right?


Everyone has seen and likely cried about (c’mon yes, you did!) Old Yeller. And just like that old movie, rabies is a thing of the past right? WRONG! Thanks to vaccination laws and programs limiting stray dog packs in the streets, human deaths from rabies are nearly non-existent in the US. Around the world, however, nearly 59,000 people die from exposure to rabies every year.
