India : Bali Launches Island-wide Campaign to Eradicate Rabies

An article from Reuters, excerpt :

" DENPASAR, Bali, Sept 21 : Across the world, hundreds of thousands of stray dogs are killed by government-led inhumane mass cullings, during which animals are poisoned, electrocuted, clubbed or shot in attempts to curb the spread of rabies.

However, in the lead up to World Rabies Day on Sept. 28, Bali's government has committed to a more humane and successful approach to eradicating rabies, implementing a model program that other countries can begin to use as part of their own rabies control efforts.

The Bali government today signed an agreement authorizing a mass vaccination campaign to immunize nearly 400,000 dogs."
