Mice infected with deadly plague are missing in N.J.
Probably not a big deal. It is common to find critters with plague in the western state.
They tell us that the prarie dogs around our area have the plague, but that it isn't nearly as dangerous as it was during the days when it almost wiped out Europe.
Isn't the NY Daily News a tabloid rag?
CNN is carrying the story too.
I guess that demonstrates the fact that a broken watch will be right every 12 hours.
And the purpose of this thread is?
Hmm, I guess the point is that there are two missing mice with bubonic plague.
Of course, in nature, there are millions of mice and other rhodents with bubonic plague. And we're all still here.
Bubonic plague killed millions of people in Europe in the Middle Ages. The World Health Organization now reports some 2,500 new cases of plague annually, including about 180 annual deaths; 75 percent of the new cases and deaths are in Africa. The United States experiences 10 to 15 cases annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The most common source of infection is bites from infected fleas carried by wild rodents.
Personally i've had the anti-lague shots. But evidently
it only protects you for about 5 years.
