Mass vaccination of mammals in Hua Hin to prevent spread of rabies

Written by Thailand News

Livestock officials in Hua Hin are conducting a mass inoculation of anti-rabies vaccine on all mammals, especially crab-eating macaques at Khao Takiab and Khao Pitak, as a prevention against the spread of rabies from today until March 27.

The district livestock chief, Mr Pittaya Kanama, said Saturday that livestock officials in Hua Hin had been trying to contain rabies in Tambon Hin Lek Fai to spread to other tambon, particularly Tambon Hua Hin where there is a large number of macaques gathering at Khao Takiab and Khao Pitak which are frequently visited by tourists.

Several dogs and cats suspected of contracting rabies have been removed from Tambon Hin Lek Fai after a 61-year old man in Ban Nong Khorn, Tambon Hin Lek Fai, died of rabies after he was bitten by a cat.

Mr Pattaya said officials had brought a big cage to Ban Nong Khorn to keep seven dogs in a house for observation whether they have rabies or not, but the owner of the dogs declined.
