The Wildlife Services (WS) program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is working with the Ohio Department of Health to protect people and pets from the threat of rabies in your area. WS is distributing an oral rabies vaccine (ORV) bait to vaccinate raccoons, foxes, and coyotes to help stop further spread of rabies. ORV baits are about the size of a matchbox and are coated with fishmeal flavoring or with a sweet vanilla wax. ORV baits can be distributed by airplane, helicopter, or car.
