County to hold rabies project

The Anne Arundel County Health Department will distribute oral rabies vaccinations for raccoons through Sept. 30.

The vaccine-laden bait will be distributed by hand in densely populated residential areas. Bait teams will wear fluorescent orange vests and travel in marked county vehicles.

There are two kinds of bait. One resembles a small brown brick, and the other looks like a light-brown condiment packet. The raccoon must bite down on the packet to receive the vaccine. The baits are safe for humans and pets.
