Cañon City Incident, Day 48

Several new cases of respiratory illness have been observed across the facility in the past three days, according to the June 9 sitrep.

Most have been identified as equine strangles although one appeared to be similar to the pneumonia seen in the West Douglas horses.

A horse in the general population died today with nonspecific signs and a post-mortem exam was inconclusive.  Samples have been taken and submitted for laboratory testing.

The mortality table still shows 145 deaths.

Last week a horse was lost to colic.  Another died this week.  How many actually survive these death camps, which are operated for the benefit of the public-lands ranchers?

Updates are posted to the Colorado HMA page.
