foxes originally in East Texas is moving from the north Theres never been a real lull in he said Theres always been cases here in bats The coyote strain poses a real problem because unlike other wild animals coyotes show less fear of civiliza tion Coyotes infect the dog or canine population which then poses a serious threat to humans If dogs get it people usually get Doherty said And cats are just as bad if not worsethere are more cats than dogs in the domestic Unfortunately Dr Doherty estimates up to 60 percent of pets in the county are not vaccinated These clinics have been held for the past 10 or 12 years but have declined in participation the past few years Because of widespread vaccination the threat of canine rabies was almost unheard of during the 1950s and 60s but has begun to reappear The current coyote throat from the south causes apprehension Rabies is a fatal viral disease that can be cured if treat ed early Painful shots in the stomach are no longer required but the new shot treatment can be painful to the pocketbpok around The city and county require licensing yearly for non neutered dogs and cats and yearly vaccinations for all animals Owners of animals found unlicensed or unvac cinated are subject to fines The State of Texas recently enacted a quarantine against transporting animals state lines without proof of vaccination For news advertising or
