The rabies outbreak in Bali has cost the lives of 102 Bali residents and cast a shadow over the daily lives of the people of the island who live in fear of the thousands of street dogs and private pets that surround them. says data from Bali's Animal Husbandry department shows that through October 2010 there were 400 confirmed cases of rabies-infected dogs in Bali, with most cases coming from the regencies of Karangasem and Buleleng.

The 400 figure was arrived at after taking random brain tissue samples from 3,500 euthanized dogs. Officials blame the remote location and hilly topography of Buleleng and Karangasem, saying officials encounter difficulties in cornering and capturing dogs that can make good an escape into nearby forests and hills.

Of the estimated 450,000 dogs that live in Bali, the government has thus far managed to vaccinate 260,000 (58%) of the total canine populations.
