Bali battles rabies epidemic

Half a million dogs are being vaccinated in Indonesian resort island to stop the spread of the disease.

    In the Indonesian resort island of Bali, 500,000 dogs are being vaccinated in an attempt to stop the spread of rabies.

    Nearly 100 people have died since the breakout of the disease in 2008.
