Silent and costly war... against raccoon rabies

Ontario apparently has spent $9 million dollars on dropping bait to vaccinate raccoons against rabies-- and sounded very proud of this in the following article:

The story itself is on a case of puppy rabies in the city, and about how bats are the main rabies carriers in the area. But I was most amused by the "bait dropping" they casually refer to when talking about fight on the "2 front lines of the raccoon rabies war".

I just can't imagine how many traps $9 million would buy--
