State Wildlife Office issues dire warning after nine dead beavers found in multiple provinces

A disease that has not been seen in Utah for seven years has been blamed for the recent deaths of nine beavers in three counties across the state.

Between March 23 and April 10, the nine beavers were found at four locations in Summit, Wasatch and Utah counties, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources posted on its website.

Testing was performed on three animals by the Utah Veterinary Diagnostic Lab and the Utah Public Health Lab.

The tests showed the presence of a disease called tularemia, which can also affect humans.

The state is asking anyone who sees dead beavers, rabbits or similar animals not to touch the dead animals but to report them to the state Division of Wildlife Resources.

The state said the last time the disease occurred in Utah, a cottontail rabbit was killed in 2017.

“The bacteria causing this infection are known to be present in the environment in many parts of Utah; However, it is unusual to see so many animals die at once,” says veterinarian Ginger Stout.

“There are concerns about the potential for tick- or fly-borne diseases, so it is advised to take necessary precautions by wearing protective clothing, using appropriate insect repellents and checking for ticks after being in brushy areas,” said Naughty. to USA Today.

According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rabbits, hares and similar animals are at the greatest risk of contracting the disease.

The CDC said the main ways people become infected are through tick and deer fly bites, touching infected animals, drinking contaminated water, inhaling contaminated aerosols or agricultural and landscaping dust, and exposure in a laboratory.

The CDC noted that one person contracted the disease after being bitten by a hamster.

Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources also noted that the disease can be transmitted by eating undercooked rabbit meat.

Prevention measures suggested by the CDC include using insect repellent, wearing gloves when handling a dead animal and not mowing over dead animals.

The CDC said the disease is present in every state except Hawaii.

The disease can be treated with antibiotics, the CDC noted, adding that most people need between 10 and 21 days to recover.

A note from our deputy editor-in-chief:

I recently heard a chilling comment: “We don’t even know if there will be an election in 2024.”

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, that’s what former US National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told The Western Journal founder Floyd Brown.

General Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every living American. If we lose it to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values ​​we hold dear may soon disappear.

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or we will certainly all hang separately.”

All this means without you, it is over. We have the platform, the journalists and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans and algorithms. Did you know that we are blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we cannot continue the fight.
