    Rabies in horse, donkey prompt warnings

    April 17, 2010

    Authorities in Colorado and North Carolina have reminded the public of the dangers of rabies after unrelated cases in a horse and donkey.

    A donkey died of rabies in Durham, County, North Carolina on April 8, and a horse has tested positive for the disease in Colorado's Arapahoe County.

    The Colorado Department of Agriculture encouraged livestock and pet owners to discuss animal health concerns, including the rabies vaccine, with their local veterinarian following the case in the horse.

    "Animal owners need to be aware that rabies is transferring from one species to another and they should monitor their animals for symptoms," state Veterinarian Dr Keith Roehr said.

    "Local veterinarians are a valuable resource to help producers decide the best course of action to protect their livestock and pets from rabies.


    As well as vaccination, those living where rabies is endemic are advised:
    • Don't feed wild animals or allow your pets around them. Be sure to teach children to stay away from wild mammals.
    • Contact your veterinarian if your dog or cat is bitten or scratched by a wild animal, such as a skunk, bat, fox or raccoon.
    • If you suspect you've been exposed to rabies, contact your physician without delay.
    • Discuss rabies vaccination of your livestock with your veterinarian. Vaccination should be considered for horses and other equines, breeding livestock, dairy cattle or other high-value livestock, especially in areas of the state where skunks have been diagnosed with rabies.
    • If you observe a wild mammal acting strangely, especially a skunk, or if you find a dead skunk that isn't on your property, stay away from it. Strange behavior for a skunk would include being out and about during daytime hours.
    • If you must remove a dead skunk on your property, wear rubber gloves or lift the carcass with a shovel or other tool, and double-bag it for the trash.
    • Do not allow pet dogs or cats to roam freely, as this increases the chance they may be exposed without your knowledge. Keep dogs in a fenced in yard.
    • Take precautions when camping, hunting or fishing. Avoid sleeping on the open ground without the protection of a closed tent or camper. Keep pets on a leash and do not allow them to wander.


    "Animal owners need to primarily look for any dramatic behavioural changes. That is typically one of the hallmark signs that the animal may be suffering from rabies," said Roehr.

    Examples of unusual behaviour include: wild mammals that show no fear of people and pets; nocturnal animals that are active in daylight; and bats found on the ground, in swimming pools or that have been caught by a pet.

    Rabid carnivores, such as skunks, foxes, bobcats, coyotes, dogs and cats, may become aggressive and may attempt to bite people, pets and livestock.

    According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, in 2009, there were 103 rabies cases in 20 Colorado counties - one of those cases included a horse.

    In September 2009, a horse in El Paso County was euthanized and subsequent tests determined the horse was infected with rabies; public health experts believe the horse was exposed in July 2009 to a skunk on its home property in the Black Forest area.

    As of April 12, a total of 28 animals had tested positive for rabies in Colorado in 2010: 25 skunks (13 from Elbert County), 1 domestic cat from Prowers County, 1 muskrat from Morgan County, and the 1 horse from eastern Arapahoe County.
    Elisabeth Lawaczeck, state public health veterinarian at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, said: "The best way to protect your family from rabies is to keep your pets currently vaccinated for rabies through your local veterinarian, humane society, or animal shelter.

    "Rabies vaccination performed by owners will not be recognised by local public health or animal control agencies for licensing or in the event of an exposure to a rabid animal."

    In North Carolina, Dr Carl Williams, state veterinarian of public health for the state's Division of Public health, urged anyone who visited Elodie Farms, at Rougement, in Durham County, from March 10 and had contact with the infected donkey to consult their docotor or local health department to determine if a rabies vaccination is recommended.

    "The donkey with rabies may have been able to transmit the infection to people as early as March 10," Williams said.

    "The animal was capable of transmitting the virus even before it became visibly ill. Anyone who visited the farm and may have had contact with the donkey during the period from March 10 to April 8 should contact their physician or local health department for advice."

    Rabies is a viral disease infecting the brain and central nervous system.
    The clinical appearance of rabies typically falls into two types: "aggressive" and "dumb".

    Aggressive rabies symptoms include combativeness and violent behaviour and sensitivity to touch and other kinds of stimulation.

    There is also a "dumb" form of the disease in which the animal is lethargic, weak in one or more limbs, and unable to raise its head or make sounds because its throat and neck muscles are paralyzed.

    It that is usually transmitted from the bite of an infected animal.

    It can also be transmitted from contact with the saliva of an infected animal through a cut or break on a person's skin, or by touching the infected animal's saliva then touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

    Rabies is common in wildlife in North Carolina. In 2009, there were more than 250 cases involving raccoons. According to Williams, the North Carolina State Laboratory determined that the donkey was infected with the variant of rabies that infects raccoons.

    Rabies is frequently transmitted from raccoons to other wild and domestic animals, including dogs, cats, horses, goats and cattle.

    Fortunately rabies in humans is rare and vaccine-preventable. The disease can also be prevented by regularly vaccinating domestic animals.

    I feel bad for the donkey, but at least he got a little payback from the perverts.

    This is so sick I think they deserve to die. How many of them might have had sex after or later with a human female subjecting her to such nasties. That's just sick to the max.

    T'was a time when bestiality required an automatic death penalty. Too bad that isn't so, today... Of course, islam would be seriously reduced by such a law, to say nothing if buggery were also outlawed... Just think, islam would be very seriously diminished... *sigh* Naturally, the "protected classes" can do whatever they like, without fear of punishment...

    Well, evidently the goats were out to pasture.

    And some truisms about the "sandbox" are certainly true.

    About
    Update April 26, 2015:* Need a photo?** Here are two.

    A few months ago A year ago* Two*Three years ago, Six years Seven* Eight years ago it came to our attention in Washington County MD that a non-profit group (Virginia Council of Churches) had been bringing refugees into the city of Hagerstown (county seat) for a couple of years. Some problems arose and citizens started to take an interest and ask questions about how this federal program works. Our local paper had no interest in finding the facts, so we decided to find them ourselves.

    One of the many startling things we found out about this very quiet effort is that these non-profit groups bring to the US on average each year 15,000 (FY90-FY03) Muslim refugees from the Middle East, Africa, the Balkans, etc, almost completely funded by the US Government through grants and contracts to these non-government agencies. Of the 168 refugees brought to our county since 2004, 125 are Muslim. Although we all have sympathy for persecuted and suffering people there are real questions to be answered about the wisdom of this policy.

    It turns out that there are hotbeds of this refugee resettlement controversy throughout the US.**We have identified some of those.** Because the issue is much more complicated than we initially realized, we have set up this online community organizing center at https://refugeeresettlementwatch.wordpress.com/ .

    If you have information or questions from your communities about Refugee Resettlement please get in touch with Ann Corcoran at RefugeeWatcher@gmail.com.

    Agree. I have NO sympathy, whatsoever, and I won't say on a public forum what I'd like their fates to be.

    Also, surely at LEAST one has suffered a "sexual emergency" since the donkey incident, and forced himself onto an unsuspecting human, animal, mineral...whatever.

    Ugh.

    For reasonably normal people, it isn't.

    Maybe the pedos are seeking to broaden their experience. Or, possibly, trying to make themselves appear normal by comparison.
