Rabies Information

Rabies is a deadly virus that is spread by the saliva of infected animals. The rabies virus is usually transmitted by the bite of an animal. In New Brunswick, rabies is present in wild animals such as bats, skunks, raccoons, and so on. For several years, rabies outbreaks have occurred in our wildlife population, putting our pets and the human population at risk.
