Bread, Rabies and her impact on my community.

So a massive campeign to fight rabies has started in my community. And since Bread was the first comfirmed case another dog from the neighorhood was brought into the Vet a day after Bread was put down and taken away to be examined.

So all over the city are flyers guiding people to the places to their dogs their shots.

I even got a newspaper article that says "A rabies outbreak has been reported in Nhlangano. Two dogs died recently at Mathendele township from what is suspected to be rabies." That is Bread they are talking about.

So even my dead dog is have an impact on the community I live in. I just hope that when I leave that I have had an even bigger impact.
