This article is about epidemic of rabies among foxes on the average of river
Volga.The author has met such animal and even has photographed it.
In the end of August we with my friend Ant have gone to his a
summer cottage to village Makarovka. It is in a mouth of Kama
river behind Volzhsko-Kamsky reserve. And here, passing the
Black wood is practically the center of reserve, we see at a
roadside red puppy sits immovable. Have come nearer, yes it’s
not puppy at all, it’s the young fox! Sits easy, to escape does
not think at all.
The big jeep and young fox:
There was a desire, to exit from car, to stroke, caress
and whether somehow to feed it. But something has kept,
we limited to that photographed it on video camera of
mobile and have gone further. The young fox continued
to sit easy at roadside as allegedly waited for whom that
of close and very necessary.
When I has told about this case to my relativies, they have
remembered, that literally two weeks earlier on local TV has
taken place a material about the fox who has come to a summer
cottages community located nearly to a place, we have
photographed a young fox, at all was not afraid of people,
fawned to children, behaved as if tame. Many have
thought it’s domestic animal, has lost owners, now reaches for
people… Thanks God! There was a skilled person - the hunter
who did not begin to be under a delusion with starry-eyed
assumptions, and is simple has taken and has shoot down the fox,
it is direct in territory of settlement. Neighbours were in a
shock and anger. So it was necessary to send body of a fox in
laboratory of veterinary control which has put the unequivocal
diagnosis - it’s rabies. Here it was for zealous “defenders” of
wildlife the true shock supplemented besides a set of vaccinal
injections. At present according to from mass-media anybody from
inhabitants of a housing estate has not suffered. Thanks the
As the service of the main sanitation doctor of the Chuvashian
republic reports, foxes at neighbours speed up not less ours: in
Tatarstan on the beginning of March were 47 centers of
rabies, on Nijegorodchina 24 were registered. And daily
run of the fox is up to 200 kilometers. The massed catching of
dogs has passed in Aviabuilding region of Kazan. The reason of
hunting on vagrant dogs - two cases of rabies of the
domestic dogs, registered in February in Kadishevo and
on the Dry River. The reason of infection with rabies
became the foxes which have run in settlements.
So, if you will meet inadequately behaving wild animal, in which
case do not make any contact with it and whenever possible report
the matter in service of veterinary control. Necessarily tell to
children that there are no kind wild animals, and there are only
such sick animals. And how much it is dangerous. And about
injections to say - here it is not terrible to go too far, it is
terrible - to go thereabouts.
P.S. Told in given article is confirmed by messages from other
regions, and also by statements of heads of veterinary control
People continue to caress vagrant and wild animals
In brief in these messages is told, that foxes come into settlements
infect with rabies of people and domestic animals, and that if the fox
is not afraid of the person it is necessary to be afraid of it.
P.S. Well here, the thunder has burst: In a southeast of Moscow mad dog has bitten some tens person. Time of the publication: on December, 27th, 2009. In other regions position is not better:
