World Rabies Day

From the CDC is this info:

World Rabies Day is September 28. On this day, begin to take the steps to keep yourself and your family free from rabies. Look for events in your area that provide an opportunity to celebrate World Rabies Day and get the facts on rabies prevention and control.

Rabies is a deadly virus that can kill anyone who gets it. Every year, an estimated 40,000 people in the U.S. receive a series of shots known as post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) due to potential exposure to rabies. In addition, the U.S. public health cost associated with rabies is approximately $300 million. Each year around the world, rabies results in an estimated 55,000 deaths – approximately one death every 10 minutes. Most deaths are reported from Africa and Asia with almost 50% of the victims being children under the age of 15.

Eye Witness Watches While Five Horses Are Stolen From Seffner, FL Pasture

SEFFNER, FL - With the state on alert already due to the previous stolen and butchered horses, this case has a urgency unlike any in the past. Could these horses be next? Can these hoses be saved before it is too late?

It is not the first time nor will it be the last time that horses are stolen in plain site of unknowing bystanders. Thieves pulled up to a fence post, cut the fence and released two horses of their own to help them corral eight others that were grazing in the pasture. The thieves then drove through the fence, loaded the horses, came back through and re-tied the fence to make it look like the fence was still up. A witness watched the scene unfold, unaware they were stealing the animals,
which took place in the 7400 block of Williams Road on September 5, 2009. Two men, one described as tall and slender, the other chunky with a goatee, worked with a heavyset blond woman as they talked with a neighbor who didn't know they were stealing the horses. The thieves were able to drive away with five horses, two of which are listed with Stolen Horse International, aka, in a truck described as a new model maroon Dodge Dully. It was pulling a green combo stock trailer which may have a white canvas top.
