Thanks for posting that. I'm in southern/central NM and although we're not directly affected at the moment, we are at risk. Yet it astounds me how many people I know who do not vaccinate for rabies still. I like coming across links like this because while I vaccinate for it routinely, many people I know don't and it makes an easy way to show them why they should.

Two horses in TN died from rabies this past January. A rabies vaccination is a core vaccination with my horses.
