Plague in East Mountains

Plague in East Mountains

'Avoid sick or dead rodents or rabbits' - Health Secretary Lynn Gallagher

Three Dogs Infected Since New Year’s

The New Mexico Department of Health reports the discovery of plague activity in the East Mountain area impacting parts of Bernalillo, Torrance, and Santa Fe counties.

Three dogs from the East Mountain area and within several miles of the town of Edgewood have been confirmed to be carrying plague since the beginning of this year by the department’s labs.

“With the recent warm weather, people and their pets are understandably taking the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors,” said Department of Health Secretary Lynn Gallagher. “But while outdoors – especially right now in the East Mountain area – you need to avoid sick or dead rodents or rabbits to reduce your risk of exposure to plague.”
