Public welcome to view meteor showers at Harrison Hills Park

Allegheny County to place rabies vaccines
Allegheny County will continue to place rabies vaccine baits across the county, especially in parks.
The baits will be delivered both by hand from ground vehicles and by helicopter. Helicopters will fly in north-south transects that do go over residential areas. As the transects are close together to ensure sufficient baiting, residents may see the helicopters moving slowly over the same area multiple times within a short period of time. Helicopter baiting will begin today and run through Aug. 17
Residents should keep dogs on a leash and not allow them to eat the bait. Bait will not harm your dog but may cause an upset stomach and/or diarrhea if they eat too many. If bait must be moved, use a latex glove or plastic bag to touch it.
For details, call 877-722-6725 or 412-350-4046 or visit www.achd.net/raccoon/.
