Think of all the issues going on across the Country right now – drug addiction, homelessness, mental health issues and so on – and Sexually Transmitted Diseases are part of/caused by all of the above.

In the U.S., while dogs and other mammals do cause problems, our main source of Rabies infections is bats.
