    One could hope ...

    More seriously, I think current treatments may be less painful, but how current medical practices might be there in Morocco, who knows.

    BTW, has this story been fact-checked? The name of the "news" site sounds like it could be a faux-news or satire site. Maybe no donkey was harmed in the concocting of this "news" story.

    Regrettably no. In the United States, postexposure prophylaxis consists of a regimen of one dose of immune globulin and four doses of rabies vaccine over a 14-day period. Rabies immune globulin and the first dose of rabies vaccine should be given by your health care provider as soon as possible after exposure. Additional doses or rabies vaccine should be given on days 3, 7, and 14 after the first vaccination. Current vaccines are relatively painless and are given in your arm, like a flu or tetanus vaccine.

    When I was 9 my dog had some symptoms of possible rabies and there were known skunk infections in the county. Grandmother and I took shots in the stomach for 14 days.

    Ouch.

    The threat of having rabies vaccinations in the stomach until the end of time was enough to keep us kids away from stray dogs growing up!!!
