If you're walking around in the Montérégie woods this weekend and notice that it's raining green ravioli, don't worry, it's not the brownie you ate. Quebec's Ministry of Forests, Fauna, and Parks is planning to drop hundreds of thousands of green, ravioli-like treats from the sky for raccoon rabies prevention. While they might look delicious, you can't eat them as they are intended for wild animals.\nOn August 7 and 8, around 1,400 square-kilometres of Montérégie will be covered in 175,000 little green bait treats.\nEditor's Choice: A Petition To Reverse Quebec's New Rule For Public Gatherings Has Over 8,000 Signatures\nThe treats contain a rabies vaccination formulated for raccoons, squirrels, skunks, foxes, and other small woodland creatures.\nResembling small ravioli, the green treats are intended to blend into the environment and attract critters with an irresistible smell.\nThey'll be difficult to spot if you're walking around and you should be careful if you're walking your dog.\nWhile the treats are considered safe for humans, plants, and animals, the Ministry recommends careful handling of them if you stumble across one.\nIt also recommends contacting a veterinarian if your dog or cat ate the treat.\n"It is very important to note that you cannot take for granted that your pet is immunized from rabies even if it has consumed a vaccine bait," said the Ministry.\nLutte contre la #rageduraton laveur – Opération de vaccination des animaux sauvages dans 32 municipalités de la Montérégie les 7 et 8 août 2020.
