Death Toll Still Climbing at Cañon City Off-Range Corrals

Ten horses have died in the past 24 hours, according to the April 28 update at the Colorado HMA page, bringing the total to 95.

The veterinarian’s report has been posted for public review.  The first death related to the illness may have occurred on April 18.

Today’s news release attributes the deaths to an equine influenza virus that has largely affected the horses captured from West Douglas last August.
