Birth control shots could alter life in poor areas

This April 25,2013 photo provided by SpayFirst shows wild dogs near Valentine, Neb. Veterinarians are going to inject 300 wild female dogs with a birth control vaccine that has worked on white-tailed deer, feral horses, wallabies and ferrets. The two-year study on the vaccine GonaCon will be conducted on two poor, isolated Indian reservations in the Pacific Northwest. The dogs are community-owned and get scraps from people who don't want to see them die, even though the litters keep coming. (AP Photo/SpayFirst/Ruth Steinberger)
