Another calf with rabies

A second beef calf on a farm in Wallace Township, Perth County, has tested positive for rabies.

It’s the same farm where another calf was infected earlier this month.

The Perth County Health Unit has been quick to alert the farming community to be on watch for rabies.

There have been four cases in the county since 2015, one of them a dairy cow, another a skunk, plus these two calves.
