History of Rabies

Small sensation in Toronto this week over a Humane Society worker infected with rabies -- the first case of rabies in humans in the city in twenty years.

What better opportunity to recall the ignominious death in 1819 of the Governor General of Canada, the 4th Duke of Richmond and Lennox -- bitten by a fox and died horribly. Dictionary of Canadian Biography Online has the gory details here.
