They found the plague the next county over. It was in a dog this time. We feed so many feral cats,I’ve only seen 3 mice here and they were cat killed. At least it’s not hantavirus this time.

We get 5 or 6 cases almost every year in Arizona. I've read that packrats are the primary carriers.

Squirrels are the biggest culprits... then they die in your yard so you can run over them with your mower, infecting yourself. The plague has never left, it's just rare and easily managed with antibiotics.

The plague is endemic in prairie dogs, always has been. Thankfully not very often does it transfer to humans.

I used to tell my wife to quit feeding all the feral cats, but no mice....I guess she is always right.

They've been finding plague in New Mexico since the 1970's.

Mice being the primary carriers.

Now when there is a wet year, the plant life thrives. And when that happens the mice also thrive. And when they thrive, plague returns.

When its a severe drought, the mice population drops and so does the plague.
