Is there any seasonal variation in dog bite cases?

Rabies Update: (Dr  A K Gupta, Author of “RABIES – the worst death”)

Is there any seasonal variation in dog bite cases?
It was noted in a study that majority of dog bite cases are reported in winter season. Dogs tend to behave aggressively during winter season due to the fact that they tend to protect their offspring from human beings.

Do rat bite cases require rabies vaccination?
In India most rodents, rats, squirrel, rabbits, birds and bats have been found to be free of rabies. However, following exposure to bandicoots and mongoose, PEP is recommended. Rat bite cases do not require rabies vaccination but this is a right opportunity to start pre-exposure vaccination.
