Angola Vaccinates Over 3000 Pets Against Rabies

OK, this won't make any headlines in the US (or even page A20 of any paper). But, I think it's important to not just pay attention to Africa when something bad happens.

The department of veterinary services in Kuito district, central BiƩ province, has vaccinated some 3,500 domestic animals against rabies, including dogs, cats and monkeys, said Thursday the head of department of the institution, Domingos da Cruz.

According to the official, the immunisation campaign runs satisfactorily as animal breeders flocked to vaccination posts.

Domingos da Cruz also quoted an average 200 to 300 animals as being immunized on daily basis, with the majority being dogs.
