all of the population is out of control - humans and animals alike. No system, no plan, no future.

There is an oral vaccine for rabies that can be used to reduce rabies in wildlife- I don't know why they can't make one for dogs- it would be easier to use in developing countries than the injectable vaccine, because no refrigeration is needed, and obviously you don't have to stick the dog with a needle!
