In the city’s overexposure center of the capital of Yakutia, they found a positive test for rabies. Planned activities have begun in the city to prevent the spread of the disease, while livestock advocates report hundreds of dead dogs.

On March 3, a positive reaction to the rabies virus was discovered in one of Yakutsk’s overexposure sites. Since that day, quarantine began at the facility, and visits to the overexposure point by outsiders were limited.

Meanwhile, according to information RIA News, zoodefenders entered the overexposure site and found a container with 200 corpses of dogs and cats. The head of the republic, Aisen Nikolaev, has already commissioned an audit of this fact.

The Veterinary Administration reports euthanasia for a total of 72 animals that have been in contact with an infected dog. The euthanasia procedure was carried out under the supervision of veterinary specialists, the department said. At the same time, the agency asked law enforcement officers to deal with the fact of the penetration of unauthorized persons - animal welfare defenders - into the territory of the detention center during quarantine.
