Rabies baits to be distributed
LISBON - The Columbiana County Health Department, the United States Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Wildlife Services, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Salem City Health Department and East Liverpool City Health Department will distribute Oral Rabies Vaccine (ORV) baits in the county from Aug. 26 through Sept. 6.
ORV baits will be distributed in 14 eastern Ohio counties along with areas on the corridor of the Ohio River in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Rabies is a viral disease that affects animals and people and is still virtually 100 percent fatal. Raccoon-rabies variant (RRV) is of particular public health concern because it can infect so many domestic animals and people. Ohio's effort to keep RRV from spreading throughout Ohio began in 1997 and was so successful in subsequent years that states including Pennsylvania and West Virginia how have baiting programs.
Baits will be distributed by plane in rural areas of the county and ground baiting by health departments in urban and suburban neighborhoods. A helicopter will also target urban and suburban areas, parks and preserves.
If you find an ORV bait, leave it alone, unless it is where children or pets play. To move the baits safely, wear gloves or use a barrier when picking up the baits, toss intact baits into a wooded area or other raccoon habitat. Bag and dispose of any damaged baits in the trash. Make sure to wash potential exposed skin with soap and water if bait is damaged. If your pet is eating the bait, don't panic. Eating a large number may only cause an upset stomach. Avoid the pet's saliva for 24 hours to prevent contamination.
For more information contact the Rabies Information Line at 614-752-1387, Columbiana County Health Department at 330-424-0272, Salem City Health Department at 330-332-1618 or East Liverpool City Health Department at 330-385-7900.
