Plague-infected prairie dogs have closed parts of the Denver suburb



Sections of the National Wildlife Refuge in Rocky Arsenal Mountain were closed at the end of July as a precautionary measure after the disease was discovered, the U.S. Fish and Animal Service reported.
The unaffected asylum areas reopen on Saturday, but other venues in the Commerce City, a suburb north of Denver, will remain closed until Labor Day weekend, the Tri-County Department of Health announced.

"Prairie dog colonies are being monitored and furrows treated with insecticide, but flea data are still available in tourism and camping areas that could endanger humans and pets so that these areas will remain closed," said John M. Douglas, Jr., executive director of the Tri-County Department of Health.

There are no reports of human infections, he said.

  Why is the bubonic plague still something?

In general, small mammals and rodents with infected fleas transmit the disease, which can be spread to pets or humans through flea bites or contact with an infected mammal.

More than 80% of cases in the United States were bubbly. Untreated bubonic plague can turn into a more serious pneumonic plague, which causes rapidly developing pneumonia after the bacteria spread to the lungs.
