HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) - One Hamburg resident was greeted with quite the surprise, when she found 15 small rabies prevention packets scattered throughout her backyard.

Over the past few weeks the Erie County Department of Health has joined forces with Wildlife Services, in an effort to try and control the rabies virus in local wildlife.

The organizations are air-dropping the small wax covered capsules in to rural areas of the county but they aren't all ending up in isolated areas.
