PSA: Beware of oral rabies vaccine baits
This is unrelated to (human) food, but I wasn’t sure how many people would be aware of this, especially new immigrants, so I am posting it here.
Vaccination of foxes and jackals — 2014 (official announcement)
Between 1 Jan and end April 2014, the annual vaccination of foxes and jackals will be performed. The continuous project is commonly undertaken by the State Veterinary Services and the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.
The baits, which include rabies vaccine, are brown; their size and form resemble match-boxes. They will be dispersed by various aircrafts. Though absolutely non-dangerous, the baits should not be touched and children should avoid collecting them. In case they are touched, hands should be thoroughly washed and contact undertaken (050 – 6241352, 057 – 7762229).
The project covers the entire surface of the State of Israel.\
