Anthrax Found In Whitetail Near Uvalde, Ticks On The Rise

The San Angelo Standard TImes reports the first case of anthrax this year in an adult whitetail near Uvalde. According to state veterinarian Dr. Dee Ellis, no domestic livestock are involved. In 2005, Sutton County had an outbreak that included cattle, horses, and deer, Sutton County’s ag agent Pascual Hernandez told the paper. Another problem for both people and animals this year—ticks. They’re on the rise due to last year’s heat and drought, followed up by rains over the populated parts of Texas this year, according to Pete Teel, a College Station entomologist.
