Did you handle a puppy or dog at Dr. Flea's market, Toronto, ON?

If you did, hie thyself to a doctor IMMEDIATELY. A pup sold at Dr. Flea's near Albion and Highway 27 in northwest Toronto, Ontario, Canada died of rabies.

Toronto Public Health has now issued a warning.

More on this story at CityTV and Toronto Sun.

This is VERY important. Please crosspost this information. Once neurological symptoms appear, the disesase is fatal to all warmblooded animals including humans. Read the information from the Center for Disease Control, Atlanta. Symptoms can develop up to seven years after exposure (a bite, for example).

Another strike against buying from backyard breeders, if there weren't enough already. Where were all the authorities who should have been checking these dogs?

Chasing the mythical "pit bull", I guess.
