Plague is a lot more common out West than you'd think.

So that's where those 2 went! I was wondering how they got out of my lab.

Wait. I didn't R the FA. Can I get the cliff's notes version? Will this be a civilization-destroying plague or not?

Plague occurs naturally in Colorado and is an infectious disease spread by fleas to wild rodents and other small mammals.


Man, God must hate you Coloradians. You should pray more. Or less. Or not at all. Just wait until the WBC hears about this.

BOULDER - A pet cat and a dead squirrel have tested positive for the plague, the Daily Camera reports.

The cat, which lived in the 2500 block of Sixth Street, tested positive for the bubonic plague after its owner took it into the Humane Society of Boulder Valley to be checked out by veterinarians, Boulder County health officials said. A dead squirrel found at the intersection of Eighth and Maxwell also tested positive for the plague. The cat was successfully treated with antibiotics.

Not sure if you could Cliff Note this. It's already pretty Cliffed.

Plague isn't really that big of a deal anymore. It's rarely transmitted to people and easily treated with antibiotics. At least, for now.

Which is why you don't want to play with chipmunks, ground squirrels, prairie dogs, or most other wild rodents.

Buboes, actually, and they are nasty. Give 'em a GIS when you're not particularly interested in eating the rest of the day.

This is a tiny followup to an old story. With the number of rodents (especially prairie dogs) in the Southwest, bubonic plague is endemic.

There was a girl here several years ago who died from the plague. She had a pet prairie dog. Super trashy family.

Before subbys submit stories why don't they read the story first instead of seeing THE PLAGUE and going OH MY GOD I BETTER SUBMIT THIS TO FARK UNDER A SCARY TAG CAUSE IT SAYS THE PLAGUE

its really common out in the plain states

I feel like I am losing brain cells reading these headlines
 
2012-06-22 03:10:11 PM  
Completely uninteresting. The plague has been in the Colorado squirrel population for as long as I can remember.

I didn't think that they called it the plague anymore, could you imagine going down the Dr. And he puts on that funny beak thing and says "I'm afraid you've contracted the black death"

Wells: What do you want to know?
Man Who Hires Wells: I'd just like to know your opinion of him. In general. Just how dangerous is he?
Wells: Compared to what? The bubonic plague? He's bad enough that you called me. He's a psychopathic killer, but so what? There's plenty of them around.

I figure a lot of the family lines that were super-susceptible to to the Plague were wiped out during the original Plague as well (does anyone know if this idea has been tested and stands to scientific scrutiny? Don't want to accidentally spread woo).
 
2012-06-22 03:31:51 PM  
If The Plague mutated once, it could mutate again.

I'm not worried, my money is on a huge asteroid we never see coming taking us out.

So that is from Oregon to Colorado in less then a week. yipee skipee.
