Caption

A man on his way to the World Rabies Day festivities in Kenema is chased by 5 dogs while he rides on his motorcycle. One dog bites him. I'm asked to have a look, then I take him and the owner of the dogs around the corner to a nearby home, where we borrow soap and a tea pot. I make the dog owner wash the man's wound for 15 minutes.
Did the dog have rabies? I told the city councilman to watch the dog for 10 days. If the dog acted oddly or exhibited signs of rabies or died, then the bitten man was to receive the rabies vaccines as treatment. If the dog was alive and well in 10 days, then there was no need for the man to get the vaccines.
