Re: “Human Rabies Case in Willow Creek

Today is May 17th and no more information from the CDC or Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services - has been dispersed as regards the "first ever" case of human rabies in Humboldt County. Why the smoke-screen?? Did the young victim die? How many other Willow Creek residents have come forward to receive the post-exposure profylaxis? as human rabies is reportedly "rare" in the United States (only a handful of cases annually) - this is a HUGE story! In Humboldt County, an educated guess would be that thousands of dogs are unvaccinated for rabies and totally off-the-grid so far as state-mandated licensing..Cats? probably in the tens of thousands! Unvaccinated companion-animals co-mingle with the wildlife... Need I say more?? Please contact the CDC and our local Department of Health and Human Services - and demand to be informed about this current case... clearly, this is potentially a public health threat!!

Re: “Human Rabies Case in Willow Creek

Why the 'smoke screen' from Department of Human Health Services and the seemingly inept 'investigators from County Animal Control?? If these professionals charged with safeguarding both human health issues and our animal-community - are contacting "people who may have been exposed" to this deadly virus... doesn't it stand to reason they already know which species of animal bit the dying victim?? I think we citizens have the right to know everything, and that officials are under a duty to inform us!
